Gianluigi Donnarumma Promises To Get AC Milan Crest Tattoo On His Arm

Gianluigi Donnarumma has vowed to get a huge AC Milan crest tattooed on his arm, just days after receiving a brutal reception from fans on his return to the San Siro.

The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who made 251 appearances for Milan after making his debut in 2015, left the Italian giants on a free transfer this summer before signing a five-year deal at Paris Saint-Germain.

It was a decision that was criticised by many Rossoneri supporters and thousands made their feelings known during last week's Nations League semi-final clash between Italy and Spain.

Ahead of kick-off, Donnarumma - who was the hero for Italy in their European Championship final victory against England this summer - was pelted with abuse from fans inside the famous stadium.

His first touch of the ball was then loudly jeered by sections of home support and that continued throughout the night.

Reports emerged after the final whistle that the hostile atmosphere reduced the shot-stopper to tears but despite a far from welcoming reception, it's clear that he still loves his boyhood club.

In an interview with Italian TV show Le Iene, Donnarumma was given a large temporary tattoo of Milan's logo on his arm.

The reporter then asked: "When you get to Paris, you go to a tattoo artist and make it permanent?" before Donnarumma responded: "We'll see, we'll see... Ok, alright then!"

In the same interview, Donnarumma said he "will always love" the Serie A club and "will always have a Rossonero heart" following his move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

"The whistles directed towards me at the San Siro? It's normal to be upset," he added.

"I grew up here and have always been a Milan fan. Eight years are not easily forgotten."

In terms of the booing on Wednesday night, former AC Milan manager Fabio Capello said the Italian goalkeeper was "ungrateful" towards his former side.

"I hope he is satisfied because he is a player of the national team who has made a fundamental contribution to the European title," Capello told il Corriere dello Sport.

"But let me say one thing: Donnarumma was ungrateful towards Milan, going to PSG.

"For everything the club had done for him and his family when he was a kid, he should have behaved differently."
