AC Milan goalkeeper Donnarumma trying to be squad leader

AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma admits he's trying to become more of a dressing room leader.

Donnarumma, 21, has been in the Milan first team since he was 16 years of age.

He said, “We're a young group full of quality. I've been at AC Milan for many years and I try to make myself heard in the dressing room alongside captain Romagnoli: we support each other."

The goalkeeper also stated: “I've always had a passion to play in goal thanks to my uncle and brother, even though it's the most difficult role," he said.

“Right from the start I was able to handle the pressure of playing in Serie A well, first with lightheartedness and now with more maturity."
