Paolo Maldini, the legendary Milan defender, lost his father Cesare Maldini-another Milan idol- only about three months ago.

And now Paolo’s mum, Maria Luisa Maldini, has also died.

Milan released some touching words in wake of the tragedy,

“There is loss in all of us, but also the strong desire to huddle with great affection the children, the grandchildren and all the Maldinis.

“Lady Marisa is now up there with Cesare.

“To our Paolo, to Alessandro, to Piercesare, to Donatella, to Monica, to Valentina, we offer our deepest sympathy on behalf of everyone at Milan.

“The memory of sweet Marisa is the memory of an exemplary guardian of family values.

“A woman of class and style. A discreet mother, an ever-present wife and always sensitive.”

People on twitter also responded to the tragedy:

At least, as Milan stated, Cesare and Marisa are together again.

We are thinking of you, Paolo. The Rossoneri are here for you.
