Maldini remains tight-lipped on Milan sale, admits Ibrahimovic injuries ‘a problem for us’

By Mitchell Wilks -

Milan technical director Paolo Maldini has opened up on future plans for the Rossoneri ahead of a crucial home clash against Genoa, which he cited as a must-win game.

With Inter beating Spezia to go top of Serie A on Friday evening before Milan took to the field, pressure is on the Rossoneri to respond and reclaim top spot, in a tight race for the Scudetto.

Maldini spoke to DAZN before kick-off (quoted by MilanNews), addressing a number of key issues that go beyond the current season. One being Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was again absent from the squad.

“Ibra’s prolonged absence is a problem for us,” He admitted, but maintained that not signing an attacker in January was the correct call: “There was no availability to intervene in attack in January. We felt strong.”

A number of other issues were also discussed, such as:

Rumours about a sale of the club: “I know little, it is normal that in the future of Milan there may also be a sale. I don’t know when that moment will be. With a few gameweeks to go, I think it is in everyone’s interest to try to win this championship. We also have the semi-final of the Coppa Italia to play”.

The pressure of winning Serie A: “We don’t know the real motivation. There is probably a bit of tension that these guys are not used to. Few have fought to win a championship.”

Maldini also remained quiet when asked about the potential signing of Divock Origi, again insisting that the club is only focused on the current season for the moment.

      1. Sorry man, I don’t support ‘Someone’, I support AC Milan.

        As for Maldini, I respect him as a legend, and I want him to succeed. He and Massara did well when he assumed their positions, but their decision during the summer is currently haunting our quest for the scudetto. Let’s stop evading the truth.
