Donnarumma made a mistake choosing PSG money - Sacchi

The ex-Rossoneri manager describes Gianluigi Donnarumma as a ‘great champion’ but he believes the shot-stopper should have stayed at Milan.

s move to

was a mistake, hitting out at him for “choosing the money”.

The former Milan shot-stopper departed the Rossoneri after PSG lured him for a contract that would keep him for five years when his deal with the Serie A side expired.

The Italy keeper has not started on the right foot in France as he has only played in 18 games for the Ligue 1 side.

bounce back from two goals down against PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Sacchi thinks Donnarumma should not have departed Milan.


He made a mistake in choosing the money,"

Sacchi told the Corriere della Sera. 

"I also told his father and mother, last summer, here in Milano Marittima. Stay at Milan not so much for gratitude, but because it was the ideal place to grow.

"Never leave the places where you feel good. But he remains a great champion, I have known him since he was little more than a child, in the youth national teams."

PSG’s attempts for Champions League victory were ruined at the last 16 round, which was not a surprise to Sacchi.

He added:

"It is not a project. As George Bernard Shaw said, football is the art of compressing universal history in 90 minutes. In football, as in life, talent is not enough. 

"Money is not enough. It is the group that wins, never the individual. The game and the organisation are like the plot for a writer and the score for a musician. 

"The secret of everything is ideas. Anytime, anywhere. And I see few ideas at PSG."
