Maldini offered Milan role?

Reports suggest Paolo Maldini has been offered the role of technical director by Milan’s future CEO Marco Fassone.

It has already been decided that Fassone will come in if and when Sino-Europe Sports complete their takeover of the Rossoneri.

The Chinese consortium are looking for a club legend to act as a symbol of their new regime, with Maldini the obvious choice.

Now MilanNews is reporting that the Diavolo’s all-time record appearance holder has been offered the role of technical director after a meeting with Fassone.

It’s thought the former defender has asked for time to think over the offer, and will reply in the next few days.

Maldini made over 900 appearances for Milan, winning seven Scudetti and five Champions Leagues.

His late father, Cesare, won four Scudetti and a European Cup in 412 appearances while his sons Christian and Daniel have played for the youth teams.
