Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will wear the captain’s armband for the Italian national team at the European Cup. The goalkeeper spoke to Sky Sport about his new role, which he finds particularly stimulating.

“There are certainly a lot of responsibilities, but I’m proud to wear the armband and be an example. It’s exciting to be the captain of the national team,” said the former AC Milan player before continuing. Donnarumma had great examples in Bonucci and Chiellini. “I try to set an example, to be myself without changing anything. I’ve had a lot of examples, like Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Gianluigi Buffon, from whom I draw inspiration. There are a lot of us who are leaders in this team. Everyone has to feel like a captain, be an example to the team, and contribute to forming a single, united group. A strong bond has developed between us. We’ve got quality, and a great coach who’s sure to put us in place and make us feel important so that we can play great games. We have everything we need to become a great European team,” he concluded.
