Yep, I'm always afraid that if one day he just "lose" his game, then he'll end up being a Costacurta or a Fernando Hierro, or many other players that should have retired when they still were at the best of their carreer.
I know Maldini isn't like those players, but if I was him, I would retire by the end of next season, and trust me, this isn't easy for me to say, he might be my #1 reason for watching football + he is my favorite all-time player.
But let's face it, this are the last seasons we'll see of him, in the time, let's just enjoy them!
