‘Gigio suffering from overconfidence’

Gianluigi Donnarumma’s mistakes in the Coppa Italia Final stemmed from ‘overconfidence’, according to former Milan goalkeeper Marco Amelia.

Donnarumma made two high-profile blunders during Milan’s 4-0 defeat to Juventus, and Amelia urged the youngster to confide in Coach Gennaro Gattuso.

“He’s been in the adult world since he was 15,” the ex-Italy international told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He’s reached 100 appearances in Serie A very naturally and he’ll overcome this slump.

“Mistakes are physiological in growth, but they must be assessed without forgetting the psychological and emotional aspect too.

“He made his debut in A with the unawareness of a 16-year-old, without demands or expectations, but now there are. I don’t think Reina will be a problem.

“I don’t consider his mistakes to be technical, but rather they stem from over-confidence in two simple situations.

“How will he bounce back? He’s lucky to have a Coach like Gattuso, who built a successful career on an ability to overcome difficulties and limitations.”
