AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini could be set for a new role in the club after chief executive Ivan Gazidis said Wednesday he wanted to convince the former Italy defender to become technical director.
Brazilian Leonardo stepped down as sporting director on Tuesday, along with head coach Gennaro Gattuso, amid reports of financial cutbacks at the seven-time European champions.
The former European heavyweights finished one point behind Inter Milan in Serie A in the battle for the fourth and final qualifying spot.
Gazidis said in an interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport, that with the help of Maldini, they could “bring Milan back to the top”.
