Montolivo agent slams AC Milan keeper Donnarumma

The agent of AC Milan midfielder Riccardo Montolivo has hit out at teammate Gigio Donnarumma.

Giovanni Branchini has questioned Donnarumma's selection with Italy.

Branchini said, “Why must Donnarumma be a permanent starter?

“We're talking about criteria, not players. Sirigu was one of the best goalkeepers of last season, while Donnarumma ended it badly and has started this one poorly.

“The truth is that we have to throw wool over people's eyes. Gigio decisive against Poland? But he's a great goalkeeper…

“Is Donnarumma the future? On which criteria? And then, to call him up, we wait for the future to become the present.

“The underlying problem is something else. We haven't produced a champions for 15 years and no-one asks why."
