Zoff: 'What more does Donnarumma need?'

Italy legend Dino Zoff urges Gianluigi Donnarumma to remain at Milan and not ‘create more problems just for a better salary. What more does he need?’

He did this to protect Donnarumma, who had been insulted by fans demanding he sit out the upcoming clash with Juventus unless he signed a new deal, so all talks have now been postponed until after the season has concluded.

Incoherent Coppa Italia format

The new Coppa Italia format has caused controversy and Richard Hall argues it is ironic the plan was developed by those who said to be ‘firmly against’ the Super League.

There were few mourners at the European Super League’s funeral, it was not popular and this feeling was felt worldwide. It was incredible then that even as the earth was still fresh on the grave, the Lega announced plans to re-vamp the Coppa Italia and only involve teams from Serie A and Serie B.
