Maldini: “The fans fill our hearts; asking if Ibra is ready for a derby is a bit of a provocation”

By Oliver Fisher -

Paolo Maldini has insisted that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is ready for the derby but hopes his altercation with Romelu Lukaku is over.

Maldini was interviewed by DAZN before the game against Inter, with his comments transcribed by MilanNews and translated below.

“Would I like to still be playing? They are memories of the past that never come back. A top challenge after so many years, a great emotion. The fans fill our hearts in this football that is now a bit cold,” he said.

On Ibra: “Asking if Ibra is ready for a derby is a bit of a provocation. Lukaku? I hope it closes with a handshake or a hug, the question is closed between the two players.”
