Paolo is just simply the best, not only with red and black glasses on but always, because like Garganese said it, he's a champion on and off the field. Loyal and classy till the end.

Who else in the world has stayed so humble with such performances. That's the main reason why I hate the likes of C. Ronaldo(and this is no bash at him, his skill is incredible etc); people with talent are allowed to be arrogant to some point, but when this arrogance shines all the way to the moon, that sickens me. And aren't athletes supposed to be role-models?

That article nearly brought a tear to my eye, as it made me realize yet again that the only way we'll see someone as charismatic, dedicated and darn good as Paolo, we'll have to clone him.

But I still have faith in the Maldini-family, especially in one Christian Maldini. If god permits, we'll have a Maldini as captain yet again some day

My Alltime XI back line would include Maldini, Baresi, Beckenbauer, and Bobby Moore.

Of course he is
But, what's impressed me more about Paolo, has been the way he's conducted himself off the pitch. He's not the tabloid cover boy so many other football stars are.

I hope the apples(Christian and Daniel) didn't fall too far from the tree(Paolo).

interesting article..

by the way:
He was the best in the world at what he did but unlike some of the flashy, over-hyped clowns of today, he did not go public proclaiming his brilliance. = c. ronaldo..

Hey, Paolo branched from Cesare, and he wasn't that bad either

Hope this helps.
One curious note about Costacurta relating to Maldini : Billy played his last game at the San Siro last season also vs Udinese and scored a penalty.

Still no word on Paolo's condition on acmilan.com, the only mention was that neither he or Dida was available for training today.

Maldini To Be Awarded FIFA Order Of Merit

FIFA is to bestow the Order of Merit on AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini, the Gazzetta dello Sport has revealed.

The FIFA Order of Merit is usually awarded to those who are considered to have made a significant contribution to football.

The prize is not necessarily just for footballers, as apart from the likes of Pele, Franz Beckenbauer and the only other Italian to have won the award so far, Dino Zoff, political figures such as Nelson Mandela and Henry Kissinger have also been recipients.

Maldini will become only the second Italian to win the award, following in the footsteps of 1982 World Cup-winning captain Dino Zoff.

The 39-year-old Maldini will receive the honour at the annual FIFA Congress in Sydney next month. The Milan captain is set to retire from football at the end of the season after a glorious career lasting almost a quarter-of-a-century.

He has won seven Scudetti, one Coppa Italia, five Italian Super Cups, five Champions League titles, five European Super Cups and three World Club Cups.

He is both Milan and Italy’s all-time appearance maker, and is regarded by some as the best defender in the history of the game.

We as Milan fans have been privilege to have Maldini trading his skill on our team. I can't think of a more worthy recepient!!!

FORZA MALDINI!!!
