Daniel Maldini ‘dreams’ of emulating Milan legends Paolo and Cesare for Italy as he explains ‘seeing things before others’ is one of his strengths.
Maldini is currently with Italy’s Under-18 team after recently receiving his first-ever call-up on the back of his performances for Milan Primavera, which have yielded nine goals in 22 appearances this season.
“I’m very happy to be in the national team,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I want to honour the Azzurri jersey and my dream is to reach the senior team one day, like my grandfather and father.
“I always received help and advice from my father. He always tells me to keep my feet on the ground and remain humble on and off the field.
“My position? I play an attacking game, as a midfielder or a No 10 who thinks about scoring goals.
“My strengths are playing with only a few touches, set-pieces and seeing things before others.”
