Paolo Maldini: ‘Goodbye Cesare’

Paolo Maldini and his siblings have written an open letter to their late father, Cesare.

Both Paolo and Cesare are Milan legends, having made 1,314 appearances for the Rossoneri between them.

Maldini senior passed away on Saturday night, and his children penned a moving letter to their late father after his funeral today.

“We just want to thank you for the wonderful and unique journey we had together,” a letter from Monica, Donatella, Valentina, Paolo, Alessandro and Piercesare Maldini begins.

“It will make us smile every time we think of you. We were close in every moment, not knowing that you were going.

“When you left us an extraordinary thing happened: we were inundated with messages of affection for you, not banal sentiments, touching ones.

“You left a little bit of yourself in all these people.

“Thank you, Papà.”
