Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has stated that the time will come to explain his Milan exit, with the two sides set to face off later today.
The Rossoneri will be looking to open their Champions League account for wins, with Stefano Pioli’s side having picked up two 0-0 draws so far in the group stages of the campaign. They were held to goalless draws by both Newcastle United and Borussia Dortmund and they come into the game against PSG at the back of a loss to Juventus.
But the Donnarumma case is a subplot which will be at play today, with the goalkeeper having been booed by fans whenever he has returned to the San Siro with the Italian national team. The 24-year-old spoke to Sky Italia about his exit and he stated that he feels bad for how much he has been criticised, but there will be a time when he will tell the truth about his departure from the club.
“Milan has been my home for many years, a piece of my heart is still there. I still feel at home when I return to Milan.”
“It’s a particular and difficult match. Milan is used to the Champions League. It will be a complicated and hard-fought match in a very balanced group. We will have to give everything to bring home the three points. For two years I have received criticism and it hurts for what I have given to Milan in all these years, until the last day. It will be a special match, then the time will come to explain everything. At this moment there is nothing else to say. There is a match to play and to win, I am focused on the match, but the emotion is certainly there.”
