AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma gifted two goals and Nikola Kalinic added an own-goal in a nightmare 4-0 defeat for the Rossoneri as Juventus claimed a record fourth straight Italian Cup title on Wednesday.

Donnarumma has not missed a Serie A match this season, appearing in all 36 games, conceding 40 goals.

"I am the coach, all I do is train the players who are put at my disposal".

"The Italian Cup might not be the biggest trophy in football, but lifting a trophy and doing it this year has a different value for Milan", said the defender.

The South Korean minister said that the South Korean government is looking forward to a forward-looking relationship with Japan.

Gattuso, in his first season in charge of Milan after taking over in November, also took some of the blame for the result, though he also said "the result does not reflect the performance" of his team. "I too am a young coach, I am learning, I make mistakes and have to figure out where we have gone wrong to improve. Now for 180 minutes we have to be Milan, all together".

The game's first chance arrived after nine minutes as Patrick Cutrone combined with Hakan Calhanoglu before seeing his strike parried away by Gianluigi Buffon.

Medhi Benatia set the Turin giants on their way with a header from a corner early in the second half.

To start Donnarumma so repulsed the attack of Douglas Costa, the ball was in the net, and in three minutes dropped the ball on the leg, Benatia, who could expose his leg in front of the empty goal.
