Christian Abbiati, the legendary goalkeeper of AC Milan, spoke to the Gazzetta Dello Sport about Mike Maignan. This is in advance of tonight’s match between AC Milan and Inter in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League. For him, the French keeper is a force of nature.

“He (Mike Maignan, editor’s note…) plays like Courtois. He surprised me, yes, but only because he didn’t know him. My pupil, however, even if many will turn their noses up, is always Gigio (Gianluigi Donarumma, editor’s note…). For me he is a force of nature, so it is obvious that there are mistakes. But he is still so young,” said Christian Abbiati.
