While the parasite contains the host

(AC Milan)

As a part of the try to clean over a tumultuous summer time by which prized goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma burned each and every bridge among him and Milan ahead of leaving the membership, then didn’t if truth be told depart the membership, Milan signed his older brother Antonio. Himself a made of Milan’s adolescence academy, Antonio has spent his whole profession in Serie B aside from one Serie A look for Genoa, and final season in Superleague Greece. In different phrases, a profession that used to be sure to proceed its herbal slide into to the decrease extremities of Ecu soccer had his little brother now not pressured Milan to bend over backwards to house him in any respect prices.

Given this it will have to come as no wonder that disgruntled Rossoneri supporters categorized Antonio a “parasite” following renewed tips that the more youthful Donnarumma used to be as soon as once more made up our minds to go away the membership.

However precisely weeks later, with Gigi Donnarumma not able to play as a result of damage and 2d-selection keeper Marco Storari hurting himself in heat-ups, that left Milan to depend on their 3rd-selection keeper for his or her Coppa Italia quarterfinal towards Inter that supervisor Rino Gattuso in comparison to a “Global Cup ultimate” for his aspect. That 3rd-selection keeper? Antonio Donnarumma. Within the first part, it just about went horribly and predictably flawed with Antonio scoring an personal objective that used to be overturned way to video evaluation. However then predictability went out the window and Antonio stored a blank sheet thru overtime as Milan beat Inter 1-zero on a 104th-minute purpose from Patrick Cutrone.

So 5 years after first leaving the membership and weeks after being referred to as a parasite, Antonio Donnarumma held Milan’s largest rival goalless for one hundred twenty mins. As you do.

From Soccer Italia:

“I all the time educated smartly, I all the time did my paintings in silence. Paintings will pay off and luckily it went smartly, I may just now not have requested for a greater debut. It used to be a dream Milan debut,” he informed Milan TV.

“Once I heard Marco used to be injured, I used to be a bit of surprised, however I informed myself to take this opportunity and feature a laugh. It went smartly, together with the store on Joao Mario.”

In fact, the topper to all of this may be if Milan now allow Gianluigi Donnarumma depart so Antonio can turn into the whole-time starter. In order that’s one thing to stay up for.
