Maldini-Milan divorce, the future is to be built


Highlights: Paolo Maldini has left his role as technical director of Milan. The Italian will be assigned to an integrated working group. Maldini is a victim of what he represents, writes Gianluigi Buffon. The Milan of tomorrow is in contrast with the idolatry of icons, writes Buffon, and Maldini belongs to these. Milan are at the top of those who have invested the most in the last two sessions, net of sales, says the Italian press. The club has put together 16 points less this year than the previous season, but also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

"He concludes his assignment", with backdated effect to the previous day. There is a game of semantics to describe the separation without talking about dismissal or resignation, but suggesting a distance that could not be bridged anymore. Little changes in the effects, so much instead to understand the motivations that led Milan and Paolo Maldini to say goodbye. A misalignment and also a "cultural" difference, is whispered in some rooms near the room of buttons. The one that puts on two parallel levels the entrepreneurial management of a club in financial self-sufficiency and one of the totems of the club's history. And that precisely for this reason is seen to belong more to the sphere of feeling, antithetical to the managerial rationality of the RedBird course.

The reconstruction of yesterday's meeting between Gerry Cardinale, Maldini and the sporting director, Ricky Massara, is all here. The virtuous circle pursued by the Milan company, with the Rossoneri at the top of those who have invested the most in the last two sessions, net of sales. On the other hand, a Maldini perhaps also victim of what he represents. It is the distance between the Milan of tomorrow and that of yesterday, the mathematics of investments and results in contrast with the idolatry of icons. Maldini, who has also spent himself professionally in his position as technical director, belongs to these. As for the god Ibrahimovic greeted with a 'GodBye' by the South, considerations are not made in spite of the accounts but of the saints, as well as the one that bears the name of Siro. Because in fact it is precisely the approach to the stage question that marks the difference between development and a sense of belonging, provided that we consider the two voices in contrast. The curve, at the last with Hellas, clearly exposed his "Company, we want the leap in quality. Another year has passed, it's time for the market"

. Paraphrase of what Maldini had said close to the two Euroderbies, effectively digging even more the furrow between himself and the reasons of state. But even the last market, with almost 65% of the resources invested in De Keteleare's flop season, had its weight. Milan, with the Scudetto on their chest, has put together 16 points less this year than the previous season, but also reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League. And now Maldini's tasks and responsibilities "will be assigned to an integrated working group, which will work closely with the coach of the first team, reporting directly to the CEO", explains the company. More power to Furlani, with Massara in turn with the suitcase in hand. He who almost daily has been at Milanello next to Maldini, this year. Which, however, can be defined already last season, after the farewells to Ibra and Maldini to draw a line with the past. A fixed point remains Stefano Pioli on the bench, but in turn called to face a new and perhaps unexpected scenario.

Lights at San Siro, those that go out to let him in, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. A star, who deserves a Hollywood catwalk, everyone thinks. Because it's the last one with the Milan shirt, because he was more than one player. (ANSA)
