Italy Boss Roberto Mancini Slams Fans for 'Ugly' Gianluigi Donnarumma Reception at San Siro
While Spain brought an end to Azzuri's world record 37-match winning streak, thanks to Ferran Torres' twin goals, it was the ugly behaviour of the Italian fans towards their goalkeeper Donnarumma which ultimately hogged all the headlines.
The AC Milan admirers were angry with Donnarumma, who was making his first appearance at the San Siro after switching to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) during the summer transfer window.
"It certainly won't have pleased him, just as it did not please us. Gigio did well," Mancini said after Italy's surprise defeat to Spain, which won the game 2-1. "Donnarumma played for Italy and it was not a club game." "This situation could have been put aside for one night and [he could have been] whistled [at] in a possible PSG vs Milan [match]. Italy are Italy and come above all else".
