Donnarumma given new nickname at U-21 game

WATCH: Fans throw fake dollar bills at Gianluigi Donnarumma

June 19, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The Italian goalkeeper will not extend his contract with the rossoneri, which prompted protests from Milan fans while the player performed for Italy in the U-21 European tournament.

No, Gianluigi Donnarumma's decision to leave Milan was not well received by Rossoneri fans, and they surely let him know how they feel about it in a curious protest.

During the U-21 game between Italy and Denmark, which ended with a 2-0 score for the Azzurri, fans behind Donnarumma's goal in the first half threw fake dollar bills against the goalkeeper, as most of them feel he's only driven by his desire to earn more money. One fan even hung a sign that read "Dollarumma", which helps understand the frustration these fans are feeling.

A couple of ball boys were in charge of picking up the fake bills after the protest took place.

Here's Donnarumma's new nickname, courtesy of an enraged AC Milan fan.

Real Madrid, Manchester City and Juventus are the player's potential destinations, as all of these teams have shown interest to sign the 18-year old goalie.
