This week Paris Saint-Germain came away with a 2-0 victory over Manchester City, and one of the vital figures to this result in the UEFA Champions League was Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Despite already having a UEFA Euro under his belt, the 22-year-old hasn’t played in Europe’s top competition in club football. So Donnarumma made his debut against the Premier League side in a match PSG had to win, considering the result between Club Brugge and RB Leipzig.
Although it was his first start and versus an opponent of Manchester City’s caliber, Donnarumma didn’t look out of place, making seven saves for the clean sheet.
Now the decision of which goalkeeper to go with becomes more controversial, and Mauricio Pochettino answered a question regarding the situation at his press conference with the media.
“We have two number 1’s; there is no hierarchy. It is possible that one plays more than the other, but no hierarchy,” Pochettino said. “When we announce who is the starter? It varies. It could be the day before or the day of the match. There is nothing fixed.”
