Paolo Maldini isn’t ready to declare Milan champions of Italy just yet.

After the disappointing draw away at Cagliari, Maldini told Sky:

This is a serious project, we want to take Milan back to the highest levels.

We have to take care of the mentality, there are young players who are not yet convinced of what they can do and who have to find self-confidence. Dialogue with us directors could be important for them.

The anti-Juventus? Let’s be serious, we’re still a long way off being that. We’re aiming to reach the top four in the league and have a great run in the Europa League.

Projects are important, but you can’t yet compare Milan to Juventus.

Hopefully Maldini, Leonardo, and Gennaro Gattuso can get these players to realize their potential, or get ones who will.
