In recent weeks, there have been many rumours about Paolo Maldini’s future with AC Milan, as Ralf Rangnick is expected to join the club this summer. Of course, it’s a question that has divided the fanbase.
The 51-year-old has been a director at the club for two years now, most notably signing Theo Hernandez from Real Madrid for just €20m. With Rangnick’s imminent arrival, though, his future has been questioned as the German will have a lot of power.
Speaking live on Instagram with Pippo Inzaghi (via MilanNews.it), former Rossoneri striker, Maldini was asked about his position and the difference from being a player. He made it clear that he won’t take a job elsewhere, perhaps hinting at a stay.
“Of course, when you are a footballer you have other weapons. The commitment on the field, being always available, punctual and precise. As a director, you have to conquer everything, you are less credible than when you set an example on the field.
“They are different ages, history matters and I’m sure that I will only be a director at Milan. I won’t do it anywhere else,” he stated.
It remains to be seen what will happen this summer, although it’s clear that there will be many changes at Milan. The youth revolution has been planned and only the execution is missing.
