‘It bothers me’ – PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma admits he’s ‘painful’ being left on the bench with Keylor Navas No1

Italy’s hero Gianluigi Donnarumma is ‘hurt’ and ‘disturbed’ by his inability to replace Keylor Navas as PSG’s No 1.

The Euro 2020 winner is expected to be the first choice for the French giants after arriving in the summer as a AC Milan legend.

But instead, he played just five of the leaders’ 13 Ligue 1 games, plus two of their four Champions League matches.

Donnarumma told TNT Sports: “It didn’t affect my performance, but it bothered me.

“It’s not easy, because I’m used to always starting and sometimes it hurts to be on the bench.

“But I’m sure the situation will be resolved.”

Costa Rica’s 99 star Navas, 34, has signed a new contract with PSG from April to 2024.

And although manager Mauricio Pochettino has wanted to replace the goalkeepers, Navas still has the edge.

But Donnarumma scoffed at suggestions he might be chasing a move.

The 22-year-old said: “I’m happy at PSG and I laugh when I read all the nonsense about me.”

And even if he did plan to leave Paris, his huge salary would limit his options.

Last week, it was revealed that PSG had parted ways £256 MILLION a year salary.

Lionel Messi tops the list with a salary of around £650,000 a week, despite disappointing form since moving from Barcelona in the summer.

Followed by Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and Sergio Ramos also advanced.
