AC Milan’s defense director defended Donaruma and attacked Rayolas
Milan’s sports director Massimiliano Mirabell has touched on the hot topic for goalkeeper Gianluigi Donaruma’s future at San Siro. Earlier in the week it became clear that the player’s agent had sent a letter to the Rosoneri leadership, signed by Donaurora’s lawyers, insisting that the contract he signed in the summer would be canceled. In their motives, they insist that the contract came after psychological pressure and moral violence.
In the last match against Verona for the Italian Cup, fans of Milan stretched a banner against Donaruma, who was also insulted. The young goalkeeper took a heavy gesture and cried. He had to be reassured by his teammates, and coach Gennaro Gattuso said it was wrong to compare Jijo with a monster. Mirabelle agreed that it is not normal for fans to spark players from their own team and blame the agent Rayolas, whom he described as a showman.
“I spoke to Donarum and he did not tell me he wanted to leave. We understand the disappointment of the fans, but what is happening is not his fault. We know where everything comes from and we will react. I have no plans to meet Rayolas. There is nothing to say to him. Donorama has a contract until 2021.
We do not intend to sell it. He loves the club. We have to protect him from a gentleman who is trying to destroy us. One day Jijo will find out who was the good guy and the bad guy, “said Mirabella. However, he did not deny the possibility in Milan to look for a bid for Donaurra if one comes, but it has to meet the expectations of the Rosoner.
