Maldini: “We have fallen several times, always getting up again. It will be like this even now”

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan director Paolo Maldini has insisted that the club will once again rise up from its current struggles and return to its former glory.

Milan still sit in the bottom half of the Serie A table and have scored just 13 goals in the first 14 games of the season, with hopes of a European finish already fading away.

Maldini is one of the men who has come under criticism for the poor start to the campaign, with many pointing the finger at the summer recruitment in which the oldest player purchased was 25, something which did not help the leadership problem that the current squad has.

We revealed in October that Maldini – along with Zvonomir Boban – are ready to put the youth project on hold for the time being in order to add some experience to a struggling young squad.

Maldini has spoken to Sportweek, and La Gazzetta dello Sport have given a brief preview of the interview, with MilanNews.it transcribing his words.

“Milan have always been considered a technical team, which wants to offer quality football,” he said.

“This club represents passion, elegance and ambition. We have fallen several times, always getting up again. It will be like this even now.”
