Former Italy And Ac Milan Legend Maldini Dies At 84. by Bishop(m): 2:14pm On Apr 03, 2016
Sad to hear the passing of Cesare Maldini this morning.

At club level, Maldini won 4 Serie A league titles and 1 European Cup with Milan. Internationally, he played for the Italian national team, earning 14 caps and participating in the 1962 World Cup. As a coach, he had a successful career in charge of the Italian Under-21 side, winning the European Under-21 Football championship a record three consecutive times.

He was Married to Maria Luisa bearing six sons, one was Paolo a defender who once held the record for the most caps for the Italian national team (now third behind Gianluigi Buffon and Fabio Cannavaro). Paolo Maldini captained Milan to the UEFA Champions League title in 2003 and 2007. Maldini's grandsons, Christian and Daniel also play football in Milan junior teams.

Milan said in a statement: “AC Milan sends its condolences to the Maldini following the passing of Rossoneri great Cesare Maldini. Cesare skippered the club to its first European Cup triumph in 1963 at Wembley and the loss of such a key figure in Rossoneri history has left everyone at AC Milan moved and saddened. Cesare had recently turned 84 and he left his mark at the club not only as a player, but also as a coach and scout. The club president Silvio Berlusconi and the rest of the club will always remember fondly his charisma, kindness and warm smile.”

Football has also reacted to this saddened news. Tweets:

Paolo Maldini really father's footstep. What a proud father he must have been. He will surely be missed by the Milanos especially the Rosonneri.

I don't know the first Maldini but I know Paolo. He and Thuram were my favourite defender when I used to play PS1. May the dead rest in peace
