Maldini's first interview


Hello Mr. Maldini. How do you feel with sitting here as the new manager of A.C. Milan?

I can’t say that I planned it. Milan needed my help and as always, I am delighted to help this fantastic club.

How did the squad reacted to see you as their new manager?

Surely, none of us is happy that Allegri had to leave. But that’s the way it is.

What do you believe A.C. Milan can achieve this season?

As always, we will try to challenge for the title and do our best.

You really believe you are still one of the top clubs in Italy? Even after Ibrahimovic and the rest left?

Listen, Ibrahimovic is a great player. But he is only a player, not a team. A.C. Milan is always strong.

A.C. Milan signed 3 young players. Bellusci, Adryan and Liviero. Is this what you aim for? To build a young squad?

Exactly. We already have Niang, El Shaarawy, De Sciglio and Pato and I want to continue signing young players.

Does that mean that veterans such as Abbiati, Flamini and Ambrossini will leave?

Not at all. They will guide the young players. We even offered them new contracts to extend their time at the club.

Kevin-Prince Boateng is your new vice-captain and your new number 10. Isn’t that too much confidence in one player?

Not at all. I am delighted that he chose to stay with us and he deserves our confidence.

There were a lot of suggestions that you will make a change in your attacking side of the squad. Sell Robinho and use the money to bring other striker. In the end you decided to keep the attack as it is. Why?

Why? I have Pazzini, Robinho, Pato, Bojan, El Shaarawy and Niang. It’s one of the strongest attacking squad in the world. And about Robinho, I talked to him and I saw him training. He’s going to bring his best this season.

Well, that’s all for today. Thank you Mr. Maldini.

2012-10-28 05:41#68753 Arvind K : Adryan looks awesome! Do you think you will be selling Robinho?
I thought about it a lot. In the end I decided not to.

2012-10-28 06:56#68756 manchesterblue97 : Can't wait to see De Jong start sliding in :D. Is NDJ first choice?
Yes he is. He is a very good DMC. His only problem is that he's getting a lot of cards.

Thanks :) I hope to see Adryan living up to the potential.

For those of you that wants to see who is Adryan:


Adryan is a beast in the game, as expected, and you have done brilliantly to get him. The rest of your signings. Good thing you sured up the defence, because the real Maldini would surely be concentrating on that aspect of Milan's game.

That was the point. Defence was the first priority. Adryan came as a bonus.

Pre-Season Friendlies


This is the time for new manager Paolo Maldini to show what he can do. List of games: A.C. Milan Reserves (H), Houston (A), Seattle (A), Arsenal (H), Boca Juniors (H), Udinese (H), Juventus (H).

A.C. Milan 3 - 0 A.C. Milan Reserves
Pazzini
Nocerino
own goal
Nocerino
Maldini's opinion: Milan had 20 shots, but only 7 on target. That will improve. Other than that our game was perfect.

Houston 1 - 1 A.C. Milan
El Shaarawy
Pazzini
Nocerino
Mesbah
de Jong
Abate
Maldini's opinion: Tough away game but we should have been better. We played too aggressiveness and couldn't focus on the goal.

Seattle 0 - 0 A.C. Milan
Antonini
Nocerino
Zapata
Maldini's opinion: We were lucky not to lose. They had more shots and more possession. I'm very disappointed with the team

A.C. Milan 1 - 0 Arsenal
Boateng
Abbiati
Maldini's opinion: Finally we are back in the San Siro and we play well. Boateng scored a goal to give us the lead, and Abbiati stopped Arteta's penalty to keep us in front.

A.C. Milan 0 - 0 Boca Juniors
Pazzini
Bojan
Zapata
Maldini's opinion: We had full control on the game. Only problem is the strikers not doing their job

A.C. Milan 0 - 0 Udinese
Robinho
Ambrossini
Boateng
Antonini
Maldini's opinion: Again we were better. Just can't hit the back of the net.

A.C. Milan 0 - 0 Juventus
El Shaarawy
Emanuelson
Abbiati
Maldini's opinion: This game was very equal. The penalty should have brought us the win but we can't be too harsh with El Shaarawy. He will come back from it.

Pre-Season Summary:

Adriano Galliani asked to see Paolo Maldini after the pre-season.

"Paolo, I am not so happy with this pre-season."
"I think it was great. We conceded only 1 goal in 7 matches."
"You can't keep thinking like a defender, Paolo. Your job is also to get goals!"
"Just give it time. I promise you that I know what I'm doing"
"You better."

Goal of the Update: (Boateng vs Arsenal)
