Paolo Maldini has been praised in today’s edition of Tuttosport for the work he has done on the market so far as technical director.
The paper (via MilanNews) writes how Maldini went from being captain on the field to working behind a desk after a long study break, but his charisma hasn’t changed and he has become a leader of Milan just as he was as a player.
Maldini took over the responsibility of being technical director back in 2019 when Leonardo left, and in the last year and a half he has become more executive, establishing himself as the point of reference for the entire club.
His choices deserve praise too; from the purchase of Theo Hernandez – Maldini’s first move on the market – every step has been successful. The return of Ibrahimovic, the choice of including other experienced players (such as Kjaer) in a very young squad and even his handling of the Donnarumma saga – all have been appreciated.
