” Happy birthday, Superman!,- the Torino team press service wrote on Twitter.
Super Gigi, happy birthday! You were such a role model. “An example for everyone is your perseverance and desire to never give up,” Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma told Tuttosport.
I would also like to join Gigi in congratulating him. To those of us who started in professional football, his goalkeeping was a source of inspiration.
I have continued to watch and respect him over the years, as a colleague and competitor. I still recall his impressive saves a few years later. “Happy birthday, Gigi,” said Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
