Today we say good-bye to a great champion: Paolo Maldini. He is a few days short of his 41st birthday and has played better than most players at their peaks. He is a class act, a true example for young sportsmen everywhere.
His career has been longer than my life, and I have cheered him on for most of my life and I will miss being able to in the future.
His father was Milan’s Captain, he has been Milan’s Captain, and apparently his son is quite the player himself, so here’s to hoping we get to see another Maldini wear red and black.
Thank you Paolo.
