It’s rumored that if Paolo Maldini is gonna stay at Milan, he’s gonna need Ivan Gazidis to hire some old friends.

It’s being reported that Maldini wants both Alessandro Costacurta and Angelo Carbone to be hired if he’s to remain at the club as a technical director. Now, Costacurta’s record as a manager in Italy is extremely uninspiring, and Carbone’s worked as a scout for Milan, but if Maldini vouches for the two, then it’ll be okay, right?

It’s nice to see Maldini want to bring aboard others with connections to Milan’s past, but this club needs an experienced manager who can tread the waters of UEFA’s FFP enforcement very carefully. We’ll see what happens.

On to the links.
