Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma arrived in the French capital in 2021 from AC Milan. The 24-year-old came to become the starter for the present and future. Nonetheless, there have been struggles.
The Italian spoke with reporters before Donnarumma and PSG face AC Milan in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League clash at the Parc des Princes. Donnarumma had to answer plenty of questions, one of which was about how he had improved since leaving San Siro for Paris.
“I try to improve every day,” Donnarumma told reporters (h/t Paris Fans). “I have always said that there is a lot of progress to be made on my part. So, every day, I try to learn to listen. I am available to the team, and my goal is to grow and flourish.
“I am very happy with my progress here. I have a lot more experience, even if I am still a young player. This helps to better prepare for matches and experience them in a different way.”
Obviously, most of the questions that Donnarumma encountered were over facing his former club on Wednesday and on Nov. 7, which will be a hostile environment for him. Still, the Matchday 3 contest is going to have its share of emotions.
Regardless, the goalkeeper will need to check whatever he feels and heckling thrown his way at the door. If PSG wants to pull out two favorable results against Milan, they’ll need a focused Donnarumma.
