Nesta to start managerial career

Where will Nesta end up?

Alessandro Nesta has announced that he will begin a career in football management. He retired from professional football at the end of 2013, and his only other involvement was to play one game in the newly formed Indian Super League. Nest, who made 78 appearances for the Italian national team, has supposedly struggled with life away from football. In a short statement, Nesta had this to say:

"Football has always been a huge part of my life, from when I joined Lazio at the age of 9, right up until I retired a couple of years ago. I have struggled to decide what I want to do now that I have quit, and I have enjoyed spending time with my family. But even now, my kids are nine and seven, so they maybe don't need me as much as when they were little. It is for this reason that I am announcing my desire to begin a journey into football management."

So far, Nesta is favourite to take over at both Milan, where he spent 10 years, and at Montreal Impact in Canada, where he finished his career. Milan have suffered a torrid time over the last two years, and fellow Milan teammates Clarence Seedorf and Pippo Inzaghi have struggled. Montreal want to continue to expand in the MLS, and poaching a high profile manager may be just the way to help advance their club and their league. Lazio are also said to be interested in Nesta, but Stefano Piolo is widely expected to sign a contract within the next few days.
Very interesting start with the man you're using and the teams available!
Jack: Thanks a lot mate

Milan announce Maldini deal

Maldini joins 6 years after retiring

AC Milan have today announced that club legend Paolo Maldini will be joining as manager for the new season rather than Alessandro Nesta as expected. Maldini, who retired in 2009 after 36 years as a player at Milan, will join on a three year contract and be on a reported £30,000 p/w.

The deal comes as a shock, after it was widely thought that Maldini's ex teammate Nesta would start his managerial career at Milan, but they clearly did not see enough in him to sign him. Maldini has previously worked as a youth coach at Milan, while Nesta has only just began his coaching career.

Interest in Nesta is not over yet, as the Italian FA have also spoken to him about managing the Under 21 side, while interest from abroad includes Newcastle as well as Borussia Dortmund. Nest however has reportedly admitted that he may want to begin his career in the lower leagues, with less pressure. However, this seems unlikely with the amount of interest in him.
Good luck :D
wellsy1498: Thanks a lot mate!
maldini, ah what a player.
Pauker: He was quite the player...
