‘Donnarumma can be Milan’s Buffon’

Gianluigi Donnarumma’s agent believes the young goalkeeper “can be Milan’s new Buffon”.

The youngster has played in the Rossoneri’s last two Serie A games, making his debut at just 16-years-old, and drawing comparisons with his namesake, Gianluigi Buffon.

“For the public Donnarumma is a surprise, but not for us,” Vincenzo Raiola told MilanNews.

“He’s a humble lad, he knows how to keep his feet on the ground and he’s shown that with the recent media adulation.

‘Donnarumma was prepared for this’

The father of Milan’s 16-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma reveals ‘there were hints’ he would get a chance.

Donnarumma became the youngest ever Serie A ‘keeper on Sunday after usurping Diego Lopez in the Rossoneri goal, and retained the spot for last night’s 1-0 win against Chievo.

Although the decision of Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic came as something of a surprise, Alfonso Donnarumma has said that his son was ‘mentally prepared’ for this chance.

Milan stick with 4-3-3?

Milan look set to stick with a 4-3-3 against Chievo, as Sinisa Mihajlovic has a lack of strikers.

There had been speculation that the Serbian Coach could return to the 4-3-1-2 shape deployed in pre-season for tonight’s match, and he has admitted he wants to play a 4-4-2.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport report that with Mario Balotelli, M’Baye Niang and Jeremy Menez still out with injury, a front-three will be preferred.

Serie A Week 9: Did You Know?

Roma wreck Fiorentina records, Inter continue their Palermo trouble and Gianluigi Donnarumma makes history as Susy Campanale rounds up the stats.

Roma had not been alone on top of the table since Week 12 in 2013-14.

Until this game, Fiorentina had won all their Serie A home fixtures this season and hadn’t conceded here in six. They also hadn’t let in a goal before half-time. Now every team in the League has conceded at least once in the opening 45 minutes.

Roma have found the net in their last 22 competitive matches for a total of 45 goals. The Lupi won three of their last four Serie A visits to the Stadio Franchi, drawing 1-1 last season.

“I'm not exactly the protagonist of this match,” he joked to Premium Sports after the game. “But I'm chilled and I'm positive, I believe in my work.

“I've been here one and a half years, I played almost 40 games with Milan and overall it's been positive.

Galliani: 'Diego Lopez must accept'

Milan's joint-CEO Adriano Galliani respects defeated Sassuolo, saying 'I understand their success,' and advises Diego Lopez to accept being benched.

The Rossoneri inched past Eusebio Di Francesco's team, but not without a struggle, as they only managed a last minute 2-1 against a 10-man team.

“I understand why Sassuolo have 15 points,” said Allegri after the match. “Well done to those who built the team and to their Coach.

Milan: 'Age is irrelevant'

Sinisa Mihajlovic says he 'doesn't care' about the age of his players after starting Gianluigi Donnarumma in the 2-1 win over Sassuolo.

The 16-year-old's appearance makes for the youngest ever goalkeeper to play in Serie A, but Miha's interest was more in the game as a whole.

“I think we played a good game, taking very few risks,” he told the Press after the game. “The protests were peaceful, and they are understandable.
