For those who don?t know what he?s referring to :

Leao: ?Daniel Maldini is the most naturally talented player in AC Milan.

I'd sure hope so with the blood and DNA in him.

Aside from that obvious mistake, I really liked what I saw from him. Kid was confident, fought hard, not afraid to put some tackles and move the ball forward.

Impossible to judge de kid yet. Have to find his position and develop from it.. or will be wasted.

I’d put him at DM personally. Very good tackling technique, confident on the ball, good size.

He's cheering on the team from the sidelines the way every unselfish teammate should.
But then when he steps on the pitch he's taking us back to Menez level of toxic selfishness.

Not the first time he pulls this shit in the limited amount of time he's been given.


The kid seems talented. More talented than I assumed at first. But if he's this desperate to prove himself and earn more minutes then he should be sent on loan already in this transfer window.

If this kid thinks of being a passer he would be so dangerous. This is because he has a gliding style of dribbling, a bit like Rui Costa which sends opponents into a mess and disrupts their lines, so it creates good opportunities for teammates to control and shoot instantly.

I mean, he has the movement of an attacking midfielder but I don't think he is set to shoot on the run. If he becomes a good passer who sets up direct shots, he will eventually have more space to shoot on goal.

He’ll probably get playing time in the next two games. If he does , and we get a freekick that us relatively close to goal, he should take it.

This was the most infuriating thing that happened all game for me. It's an almost guaranteed goal if he plays Brahim in after Leaos run pulls the defender away from that zone.

If that's poor decision making then he has tonnes to learn and is nowhere near ready, but the alternative of being selfish is even more worrisome as that's a trait that isn't easily ironed out of ppl's games.

I wouldn't even bring him on in the next few games as punishment for that, but whatever Pioli decides to do I will support as Pioli doesn't seem the type to reprimand like that or utilize those tactics with his squad.

The problem there is that he's looking at the ground in front of him, not looking to be aware who is where. He sees Leao's run, but not Diaz off to the side. Has to learn to play with the ball at his feet while using vision of those around him.

I'm sure he will learn, he's still a kid.

I was searching for posts about Bianchessi and saw his opinion about Daniel:

From the columns of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Mauri Bianchessi, former head of the Rossoneri youth sector, spoke of Daniel Maldini: "From a footballing point of view he does not look like dad at all. They have different characteristics: Daniel does his best if used by second striker or midfielder. He puts the others in the goal and sees the door for himself: he has technique, imagination, game vision. He is a South American, in this he inherited the Venezuelan part of his mother. And physically he still has room for improvement. In the youth he spent years in which he played and others in which he did little. He struggled because he was physically behind. But we believed it and we have it waited: when he was 14 we had the opportunity to take a peer who is now at Juve, with the same characteristics as Daniel. I chose not to take him because I was sure that once he completed his physical development, with the technical skills he had , he could have become an important player.The debut against Verona was a victory for everyone ".

Seems to possess solid physical traits and has good technical skills.

He?s obviously green, but I?m looking forward to seeing him develop. His natural skills alone show more promise than most of the primavera kids over the years at his age.

It?s not like we are desperately counting on him to come through, which is great. He can eat up minutes to give others rest and hopefully develop along the way.

I have come to a peaceful place wrt Daniel. He can stay or whatever.
As long as we get the reinforcements we need....Milan has always had a passenger or two due to nepotism

Proud moment for papa Maldini seeing his little one step on the field for a CL match. Happy for him, wishing him the best this season.
