Angry AC Milan Fans Hurl Fake Money At Gianluigi Donnarumma During Game

Angry AC Milan Fans Hurl Fake Money At Gianluigi Donnarumma During Game

As an 18-year-old, Gianluigi Donnarumma has the world at his feet. He's been having a breakout year with AC Milan but rejected their offer of a new contract during the week. This meant that he has subsequently been linked with every big Premier League club on the Sky Sports yellow ticker.

Milan and Italian fans, in general, seem angry at the move. The club described themselves as 'disappointed, but we (Milan) will move on'. Which is a surprisingly calm statement to make.

While the club may move on, the fans appear to be taking an altogether different view of Donnarumma.

The keeper was called up to the Italian under 21 squad for the European Championships in Poland. Italy kicked off their campaign yesterday against Denmark's under 21's in Group C.

With 10 minutes left in the first half and the sides scoreless, the play was stopped due to bundles of fake money notes being thrown onto the pitch at Donnarumma's end.

He doesn't seem best pleased by it either.

Manchester United seem to be weighing up a move for Donnarumma, should David De Gea leave Old Trafford. That's if you believe the papers. Given the exponential transfer. His agent claimed a couple of weeks ago that 11 clubs were interested in the youngster.

If that's the case, this could take a while.

Italy won the game 2-0 after a pair of second-half goals. The first was an absolute stunner, with Lorenzo Pellegrini scissors-kicking the Azzurini ahead.

Andrea Petanga added a second, with Donnarumma keeping a clean sheet at the other end.

Well, except for the fake dollars.
