Daniel Maldini has some pretty big boots to fill at Milan and in the Italy national team, as he’s got a pretty famous father and grandfather. You might have heard of them.

The younger Maldini told Sky Sports Italia:

I’m very happy to be in the national team

I want to honour the Azzurri jersey and my dream is to reach the senior team one day, like my grandfather and father.

I always received help and advice from my father. He always tells me to keep my feet on the ground and remain humble on and off the field.

My position? I play an attacking game, as a midfielder or a No 10 who thinks about scoring goals.

My strengths are playing with only a few touches, set-pieces and seeing things before others.

If Daniel is even half as good as his dad and grandpa, then Italy and Milan will be lucky to have him.
