Gigi Donnarumma is currently in a dismal run of form, prompting questions about his role as PSG’s goalkeeper. The Italy shot-stopper’s recent struggles, highlighted by a red card against Le Havre for a mistimed challenge, have raised concerns about his adaptation to the possession-oriented style demanded by coach Luis Enrique.

While Enrique has publicly supported Donnarumma, emphasizing that there is no issue with the goalkeeper, the consistent errors in the past six weeks and a struggle to fit into the team’s playing style have become more apparent. Despite occasional key saves, Donnarumma often makes costly mistakes, such as gifting goals to opponents and struggling with ball distribution.

The recent match against Le Havre saw Donnarumma’s replacement, Arnau Tenas, deliver an impressive performance, showcasing composure and proficiency with the ball at his feet. This has intensified discussions about Donnarumma’s suitability for PSG’s style and the possibility of an in-house replacement.

Despite his strong shot-stopping abilities and past accomplishments, including winning the Golden Ball at Euro 2020, Donnarumma’s deficiencies in playing a possession-based style and occasional high-profile errors have come under scrutiny. The pressure on him increased during a challenging return to Milan, where he faced criticism from fans and contributed to a loss against his former club.

Enrique, known for his goalkeeper preferences, values those who can contribute to playmaking and maintain calmness in high-pressure situations. With reports suggesting potential replacements, such as Lille’s Lucas Chevalier, Donnarumma’s future at PSG is uncertain. While he may have time to address these concerns, the persistence of mistakes and competition from the promising Tenas could impact his standing as the team’s starting goalkeeper.
