Cannavaro: Donnarumma is Italy’s best player

Former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro has said that Paris Saint-Germain new signing Gianlugi Donnarumma is the best player Italy has.

The former Milan goalkeeper was the hero of the penalties after Italy defeated England in the Euro 2020 final and was crowned ‘king’ of Europe.

Donnarumma received a lot of praise after his fantastic performances at Euro 2020 and the last one to praise him was the former captain of Italy, Cannavaro.

“Donnarumma is the real champion of this Azzurri team,” Cannavaro initially said.

“I am surprised that, before the Euro, someone thought he was an average goalkeeper. There is nothing average in Gigio, just think of the serenity he has at 22 years old. He will be the best goalkeeper for the next 10-15 years “.

“I am happy that Giorgio Chiellini lifted the trophy.”

“He was in the stands to watch the 2006 World Cup Final and I also played with him. I really respect Gigio,” concluded the Italian.
