Gianluigi Donnarumma has said Milan should be taking things one game at a time and claimed the win against Sassuolo can change the season.

Milan scored four times yesterday as they beat Sassuolo with goals from Franck Kessié, Suso (x2) and Samu Castillejo.

However, once again they failed to keep a clean sheet and are still the only side in Serie A this season that conceded at least once in every match so far.

Despite that, Gigio Donnarumma, after a rocky start, has shown to be in great form in the last two games and last night he made a great save on Federico Di Francesco in the 30′ minute to keep the score 0-0. Without his save it, could’ve turned out to be a very different game.

“The win over Sassuolo gives us a morale boost after a tough period,” the 19-year-old told MilanTV. “We interpreted the game well, it wasn’t easy, as they are a fine team that plays good football, let’s enjoy this win. There are times during the match where you need to hold on and give everything not to concede a goal. We were good at that, and we were clinical up-front too and were able to win.

“The fans? I wish to thank them because they were great throughout the whole game, also during warm-up, let’s hope to continue like this. The game against Sassuolo could be our turning point, we need to think game after game, working hard as we are doing.

“Now there’s the Europa League, then the league again on Sunday and then we’ll have a little rest.”

We can see the results of the agility of castilejo marking and chasing opponents in their halfs. This attitude is also exhibited by Juve and I wish Milan players would adopt this. All other tactics seems cool but we just need to be ferocious in getting the ball back once we loose it.
This will also ease up pressure on our defense who have been conceding in every match

Donna, you are paid 5million a year. So far how many clean sheets have you got. NONE.
Milan’s Turning point starts when you are benched.
