Golden Ball 2021: Yachine Award for Best Goalkeeper for Gianluigi Donnarumma


Winner of the Euro with Italy, the PSG player was crowned best goalkeeper of the past year ahead of Neuer, Ederson or Edouard Mendy.

Tenth in the general classification of the Golden Ball, Gianluigi Donnarumma, 22, had a better hand in the goalkeeper classification, baptized Lev Yachine, the legendary Russian of the 1960s. The last bulwark of AC Milan, then of PSG and especially the Italian selection which reigned over Europe last summer, won the title ahead of Neuer, Ederson or Édouard Mendy.

“It was an incredible year for me, blows the native of Castellammare di Stabia, who shares the Parisian cage with Navas.

We did honor to all Italians this summer, they were indescribable emotions.

Then there was my stint at PSG, of which I am very, very proud.

It's fate.

I hope to live up to this honor on the pitch.


Gianluigi Donnarumma on the red carpet!

For the Transalpine, there is no secret.

This distinction is the crowning achievement of hard work.

“It's the fruit of daily work,” he adds.

It really is day in and day out.

I thank all those who have accompanied me and help me to make a better player.


Donnarumma has had to deal since the start of the season with an unusual situation for him and the bearing with Navas.

“It doesn't interfere with my performance,” he explained recently.

But it bothers me personally because it's not easy.

Like you said, I was always the holder and it hurts sometimes to be on the bench.

But I am calm and I am sure the situation will be resolved.
