​AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma has apologised for his costly mistake in Sunday's 1-1 draw with lowly Pescara and insists he will not dwell on the howler. 

The teenager proved he still has much to learn when he allowed Gabriel Paletta's back-pass to slip out of his control and into his own net to hand Serie A's bottom club a surprise lead. 

Though the Rossoneri equalised through Mario Pasalic, they were unable to find a winner and were left to rue dropped points in the race for a European spot. 

The result means Milan remain in seventh place in the table and having no one to blame but himself for handing Pescara a shock lead, Donnarumma has apologised to fans for his mistake and insists he will move on and learn from the experience. 


Speaking to Milan TV after the game (as quoted by ​Goal.com), the 18-year-old said: "I am sorry for the team and fans that we didn't win, but hopefully this experience will help me to learn and get better.

"I gave my all, unfortunately these things can happen and I keep my head up high, taking it on the chin.

"Pescara were well set out and we struggled to react, but had chances to win it and were also a little unlucky at the end.

"The squad are ready, we go forward together and think of the next match. It's a mistake to react to this draw with anger. I keep a smile on my face and won't let my head drop after this error."
