MILAN GREAT CESARE MALDINI DIES AGED

The legendary Italian won four Serie A titles, a European Cup, Coppa Italia and European Cup Winners’ Cup as a player and coach
Former AC Milan defender and Italy coach Cesare Maldini has passed away at the age of 84.

The father of another Milan great, Paolo, Maldini died in “the night between Saturday and Sunday”, his family announced.

Maldini spent most of his playing career with Serie A giants Milan between 1954 and 1966, winning four Scudetti and the club’s first European Cup in 1963, amassing more than 400 appearances in all competitions.

He also earned 14 caps for Italy, following his debut in 1960, and featured at the World Cup two years later.

After retiring as a Torino player in 1967, Maldini returned to Milan as coach in 1972, guiding the club to victory in the European Cup Winners’ Cup and Coppa Italia.

Maldini then worked as Italy assistant coach from 1980-86 before eventually taking the reins 10 years later, overseeing the 1998 World Cup campaign in France.

He also led Paraguay to the 2002 World Cup.
