Costacurta: 'Milan should keep Maldini'

Former Milan defender Alessandro Costacurta has claimed Paolo Maldini will help the Rossoneri return to winning ways.

The sacking of former sporting director Zvonimir Boban has led to speculation regarding technical director Maldini’s position at Milanello, but the former centre-half Costacurta suggests CEO Ivan Gazidis keeps the former left-back by his side.

“We must make sure that Paolo, who is first and foremost a righteous and also competent, acquires the skills he has yet to along his short journey.

“He is the right one and is competent. You can start again from there. Until a few months ago, we all thought there were too many managers at Milan, too many people who would have been able to say something.

“We are talking about the removal of my brother; we know the quality and the temperament of Zvone. Gazidis is not stupid, let’s not forget what he has done. With Paolo by his side, I believe that Milan will return as winners, perhaps not soon, but they will return.”

Milan lost 2-1 to Genoa in their last match before Serie A was suspended and sit seventh in the table after 26 rounds. Both Hellas Verona and Parma have a game in hand and could surpass the Diavolo, as they were only one point behind when it all stopped.
