The Italian keeper has struggled for form at the beginning of the current season.

Christophe Galtier has insisted Gianluigi Donnarumma remains his first-choice goalkeeper at Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG were 2-0 ahead of Juventus when Donnarumma made a failed attempt to defend Filip Kostic’s precise cross into the box.

Weston McKennie flew to smash the ball behind the PSG keeper with a powerful header. However, the mistake hasn’t convinced Galtier to oust Donnarumma as his side’s number one keeper.

“There will not be rotation in the goalkeeping position,” said the former Lille, Nice and Saint-Etienne boss.

“We often forget that Gianluigi Donnarumma is still a young goalkeeper, even if he has been playing for quite a while. He often forgets that things can happen from a corner, and he misjudged it the other day, but he also made two brilliant saves. Of course, I’ve spoken to him about it.

“I always hope to have a goalkeeper who comes out for set-pieces and is very present in the box. He has the physique, technical quality, the jumping ability, so I don’t want that mistake from a corner to stop him doing what I want to see from him.”

Since joining PSG as a free agent in 2021, Donnarumma has committed four errors leading to shots. Let’s see if the 23-year-old can bounce back and keep a clean sheet against Brest this weekend.
