Empoli striker Maccarone: Donnarumma can be best in world

AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is being tipped to become the best in the world.

That's the claim of Empoli veteran Massimo Maccarone.

During defeat to Empoli, Donnarumma pulled off a sensational save to prevent Maccarone from extending his side's advantage.

“It was fantastic, because all other goalkeepers, being so close to the striker, would have dived either side," Maccarone explained to Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Instead he [Donnarumma] stood up until the last second, I shot hard under the crossbar and he had incredible reactions.

“He can absolutely become the best. Let's not forget [Lukasz] Skorupski from Sunday's game though, another young man who is no joke between the posts.

“I wish a great future to Gigio though, which I'm sure he'll have."
