Despite enjoying regular first-team starts with Italy, Gianluigi Donnarumma is unhappy with frequent rotations at PSG.


Gianluigi Donnarumma has opened up about his frustrations of not receiving satisfactory game time at Paris Saint-Germain.

The Italy stopper joined the French outfit during the summer following his departure from AC Milan. However, life in Paris has not been quite like he imagined.

In spite of his fame as one of the finest goalkeepers in Europe, Donnarumma has been unable to find regular game time at PSG.


While he racked perpetual starts in Italy, the Ligue 1 club already has a world-class stopper working with them. Yes, Keylor Navas has proved to be a worthy opponent for the Italian goalkeeper.

Under Mauricio Pochettino, both the players have been receiving alternating chances to show their abilities. Donnarumma has appeared for two Champions League outings alongside five Ligue 1 games with PSG.

Although the 22-year-old still remains as the first-choice No.1 for his national side, Pochettino’s constant rotations is a sign of worry for him.


“It has no effect on my performances, but it ‘disturbs’ me,” he said as reported by Alfredo Pedulla. “It’s not easy because I was used to always starting, and sometimes it hurts to be on the bench.” 

“But I’m sure the situation will be resolved.”
