Donnarumma thanks Milan fans after they their support for him.

Gianluigi Donnarumma, one of the hottest prospects of current football was a subject of serious controversies not so long ago. The Italian custodian who is envisioned as the heir to Gigi Buffon for the Azzurri was also pretty much considered to be a ‘Bandieri’ in the making by the AC Milan fans.

But during this transfer window the teenage sensation got linked to several big names for a move away from Stadio Giueppe Meazza. The Rossoneri brigade automatically got enraged and publicly showed their annoyance to their goalie as they thought he was leaving the prestigious institution only for money.

But Gigio soon realised his situation and took an important decision of breaking the knots with his agent Mino Raiola and signing a long contract with Milan, thus vowing his immediate future to the club.

But the boy from Naples was still uncertain about how the Milan fans will accept him, but their warm welcoming of him really touched the teenager as he said:
“I want to thank the fans for the welcome and cheers, I was not expecting that. I will give everything for this jersey. For me its as if nothing happened [this summer]. I am the same, we are on the right track. The fans? They know I am Milan’s first fan and I am very proud to wear this kit up until the end. We have brought in many new players, so the important thing is to unite as a group. We listen to Montella and train well. We move forward and enjoy every single win. Dedication? Yes, to my family who are always by my side. It’s all for them.”
