Many AC Milan fans have not forgiven Donnarumma, and a section of Milan supporters handed out rolls of fake bank notes bearing the image of Donnarumma with the word “mercanario” — the Italian word for mercenary — printed in capital letters.
The fans threw the notes from the stands towards PSG’s goal ahead of the game, which ended in a 2-1 win for Milan.
The Italy international was seen clearing away the notes that had piled up in the six-yard box before the encounter.
The fans showered Donnarumma with insults and boos throughout the game.
“He has a lot of experience, personality,” PSG boss Luis Enrique said of Donnarumma after the match. “Football is passion, the [Milan] fans have demonstrated their position. The environment is like this when you are fond of a player. He played a great game.”
A youth product of AC Milan, Donnarumma made 251 appearances before leaving the Rossoneri “for a new challenge.”
He turned down a lucrative contract extension to accept an even bigger deal at PSG just days after helping Italy win Euro 2020.
It is not the first time Donnarumma, 24, has had a rough reception at the San Siro.
While starting for Italy, Donnarumma was booed by fans during a 2-1 home win over Ukraine in Milan on Sept. 12, an episode that his international teammate Davide Frattesi described as “shameful.”
