Not a good time for “Gigio” Donnarumma at Paris SG. Fresh from a series of errors, such as the one against Monaco which sparked a series of criticisms against him on social media, and then the last one in the Champions League against Newcastle which almost cost the Parisians defeat, even today in the match on on the Le Havre pitch the former AC Milan player pulled off another one.

On a Le Havre clearance that seemed harmless, Donnarumma first hesitated and then intervened late on Josué Casimir of the home team, bringing him down. For referee Bastien Dechepy there were no doubts: last man foul and red card.

So Luis Enrique was forced to let out Bradley Barcola, an outfield player, and bring in his compatriot Arnau Tenas, who arrived in the summer from Barcelona and initially destined for the role of third goalkeeper.

During the match, which PSG ultimately won 2-0 with goals from the usual Mbappé and Vitinha, Tenas made seven saves which proved to be important or even decisive for his team’s victory, and for this reason at the end match was celebrated by his teammates and warmly embraced by Mbappé and Luis Enrique.

In short, the 22-year-old who arrived last summer as a free agent from Barcelona B was the hero of the day, to the point that now, on social media, Parisian fans are clamoring for his confirmation to the detriment of Donnarumma. For whom the next few days will not be easy.
