AC Milan coach Pioli: We're counting on Donnarumma here

AC Milan coach Stefano Pioli says Gigio Donnarumma is a key part of his season plans.

Donnarumma will be between the posts for last night's Europa League clash with Shamrock Rovers.

“Yesterday, I complimented him for his presence, his availability and for how he faces every single moment at Milanello, with desire and positivity," Pioli said at a press conference.

“For me, it's absolutely no surprise. He's mature, he's ready, he's constantly growing."

Donnarumma remains in new contract talks with his current deal having less than a year to run.
