Hi friends! I'm a great football fan, so today let me celebrate on our blog one of the myths of the new generations. His name is Gianluigi, but if you believe that you have already understood, unfortunately you’re wrong! :-) In fact, I’m not referring to the current number one of our national soccer team, Gianluigi Buffon, but to Gianluigi Donnarumma, who not only shares his nickname “Gigi” or “Gigio” with his older colleague, but also seems to repeat his fantastic career on the soccer field.
“Gigio the Young” was born in 1999 at Castellammare di Stabia, near Naples, where he grew up. So he is only 17! He plays as a goalkeeper like his brother Antonio: maybe there could be a matter of DNA behind this family tradition!
He’s still a teenager, but he has already shown himself as a leader and is considered one of the most extraordinary talents in the world of soccer.
It’s not by chance that some time ago he broke several records. For example becoming the youngest goalkeeper ever to debut in Serie A or to play for the national team of Italy. That’s the reason why all the experts think that very soon he will be the successor of “Gigio” Buffon, who also is sure that “Gigio the Young” will achieve a fantastic career in his future and an extraordinary success. Just one defect: he currently plays for Milan (and I am a supporter of a different team) … what a pity!
