Donnarumma keeping head up after costly error

AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has apologised for his error in the 1-1 Serie A draw with Pescara on Sunday that cost his side two points.

Gabriel Paletta was credited with scoring an own goal on 12 minutes before a 41st minute Mario Pasalic equaliser, but the Milan stopper was at fault for allowing his teammate's back pass to roll under his foot and into the back of the net.

The result left Milan in seventh place on the Serie A standings, on 54 points, 10 adrift of Napoli in third and 20 behind league leaders Juventus.

Speaking after the game, the young goalkeeper told Milan TV: "I am sorry for the team and fans that we didn't win, but hopefully this experience will help me to learn and get better.

"I gave my all, unfortunately these things can happen and I keep my head up high, taking it on the chin.

"Pescara were well set out and we struggled to react, but had chances to win it and were also a little unlucky at the end.

"The squad are ready, we go forward together and think of the next match. It's a mistake to react to this draw with anger. I keep a smile on my face and won't let my head drop after this error."
