“It was great! It was my first title, the first league title I’ve ever won, so I’m really happy to have done it with Paris. It was also the tenth league title in the club’s history and we equaled the record, which made me it makes you even happier, ”Donaruma said.
“Yes, it is special; winning ten titles is something special. It’s really great to be able to win. As players, we all wanted to do it, but so was everyone else at the club. Our goal was to win the title, so this was a really important season. “Unfortunately, we dropped out of the Champions League, but by winning the title we gave some consolation and that made us really happy.”
Donaruma added that PSG is struggling to cope with its early exit from the Champions League.
“It was an amazing and emotional year, but also a bit difficult. After we dropped out of the Champions League, it was a little strange. We had problems absorbing it, but we had to accept it. We had to move on because we still had the league title to win, and we finally managed to react. So I would say that the season was positive overall, “said Donaruma.
“Leaving the Champions League aside, it was a good season, but we can’t be completely happy with it and next year we will try to win as many titles as possible. A lot of people at Outside think it’s easy to win League One. but I know this is completely untrue. There are some great teams in this league and there are some really tough places here, with hostile crowds and some very competitive countries. “
“It’s really not easy and you always have to be well prepared and work 100%, because some games are really difficult. If we are not 100%, it becomes difficult to return victories, so we have to play our best every time. “
