AC Milan coach Pioli remains calm as Donnarumma deal runs down

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli remains calm over Gigio Donnarumma's contract situation.

The goalkeeper's deal expires at the end of this season.

Pioli said, “I had only faced him as an opponent [before joining Milan] and I could only appreciate his technical qualities [once I arrived]. I found a guy older than his age.

“In my experience his growth has been continuous, he is growing in everything he does, from nutrition to attention to detail, he is already at a the highest levels but he has many room for improvement.

“I'm very pleased with his approach. I am not worried about the future because as long as I see players so focused and positive I am calm and I know that the club is working in a certain direction."
