AC Milan have announced the appointment of Paolo Maldini as the Club's new Technical Director. He will work closely with Zvonimir Boban, the Club’s new Chief Football Officer.
The former Rossoneri Captain's appointment culminates an iconic career spanning twenty-five years as a player and more recently his time as Sporting Strategy & Development Director. Maldini’s first and most pressing task will be to manage the development plan of the whole Sporting Area, including the current priorities representing the transfer market, Club’s teams plannings ahead of the summer camps and pre-season fixtures.
AC Milan CEO Ivan Gazidis said: "Paolo embodies that quality and those values that are the building blocks of our Club. I am happy to have him at the helm of our Sporting Area. With him, we will be able to build a modern Club, formed by professionals of the highest quality. It will be a journey we will pursue together to achieve a challenging and compelling project, one which will require great energy and dedication. I am confident Paolo will be able to project his experience, his vision and his leadership. Paolo is an integral part of AC Milan and knows the way to success. He will be an important point of reference for everyone."
