Donnarumma, meanwhile, admitted that he feared Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo the most while engaging in a question-answer session with news agency ANSA.

“I have faced many great forwards, but I have always feared Ronaldo the most.”

Rossoneri means a lot to Donnarumma

“The Rossoneri colours mean a lot to me, because I grew up here. I have always been a Milan fan and I can’t help but give my best for this shirt,” Donnarumma said.

“The first goal is the one I share with the club and the one we have set ourselves at the beginning of the season. The personal goal is to always give my best and try to concede as few goals as possible.”

Donnarumma has had a good spell at Milan this season since the arrival of coach Stefano Poli. He has helped them climb to seventh in the Serie A table and has 10 clean sheets from 24 matches.
