Donnarumma delighted for Milan but has ‘no regrets’ over leaving for PSG

Gianluigi Donnarumma hailed the “perfect year” after Paris Saint-Germain and Milan won their respective leagues, but the goalkeeper has no regrets after leaving the Rossoneri.

After failing to renew his contract, Donnarumma was widely chastised by Milan supporters.

After a successful Euro 2020 campaign with Italy, he chose to join PSG on a free transfer ahead of the 2021-22 season.

With PSG clinching a record-equaling 10th Ligue 1 championship, the 23-year-old preserved five clean sheets in 17 Ligue 1 games while sharing goalkeeping responsibilities with Keylor Navas.

Milan, meanwhile, edged out Inter to secure their first Serie A crown in 11 years, much to the delight of Donnarumma.

Donnarumma, in a news conference on Sunday, said:

“After winning the title, the perfect year was the Scudetto of Milan, and I congratulated them.

“They did an incredible job, and I’m proud of them.

“I have no regret, and I’m happy with Milan’s actions.

“And I wrote to all my teammates to congratulate them.”

Donnarumma has also praised the performance of fellow goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who was on top form to help Real Madrid to a 1-0 Champions League final victory over Liverpool on Saturday.

Courtois pulled off nine stops in the final, the most on record since Opta began recording data in 2003-04.

Madrid secured a 14th European Cup, more than double any other side.

Donnarumma said of Courtois:

“I saw the match, and he played a great game. He kept Real Madrid standing until the end.

“It made me feel a bit like we could have been there, but unfortunately, football is like that.

“They won, and I congratulate Courtois. He made great interventions.”

Donnarumma’s focus now turns to the ‘Finalissima’ between Italy and Argentina at Wembley Stadium in a meeting between the European Championship and Copa America winners.

Italy defeated England on penalties in the Euro 2020 final at Wembley before missing out on World Cup qualification for Qatar after a play-off defeat to North Macedonia.

Donnarumma added:

“We must not forget what we did at the European Championship.

“This is a fantastic group, and they gave us an incredible result.

“The disappointment of not qualifying for the World Cup is still fresh, and we are still disappointed.

“It hurts, some guys will no longer be with us, but we must bring Italy back to where it deserves.”

Roberto Mancini will have Giorgio Chiellini to call upon for one final game before his international retirement.

And Donnarumma says Italy will miss the experienced centre-back.

He continued:

“We will miss everything about Giorgio, both on and off the pitch.

“He was a reference point for Italian and world football, especially for us young people.

“He gave us great help, and now we want to give him great joy. And he will be missed on the pitch.
