Maldini and Boban return to AC Milan

After parting with Leonardo and coach Gennaro Gattuso, Ivan Gazidis began to rebuild AC Milan’s leadership and the two most famous names were invited: Paolo Maldini as Technical Director, and Zvonimir Boban as the club’s football commission head.

The icon of AC Milan, Paolo Maldini replaced Leonardo’s role, when the Brazilian legend will return to former club Paris Saint-Germain.

Zvonimir Boban, who played for AC Milan from 1991 to 2001, left FIFA when he gave up his position as Deputy Secretary General to return to AC Milan.

Maldini used to be Milan’s development manager and sports strategy but CEO Ivan Gazidis felt Maldini was the right man to replace Leonardo. “Paolo is the embodiment of quality and value to build a foundation for Milan club. I am very happy to have him lead the club’s sports field,” he said on the club’s website.

Milan must be a top club and a winning team, because this is unique in the history of the club and that is the nature of the fans and their passion, I will devote myself to this reason and the color of the Rossoneri.

Abandoning the position of FIFA Deputy Secretary-General to become the club’s “manager of football” is a step back and unacceptable, but Boban said: “When Paolo called me to ask if I could play the role or not, I jumped into the car and rushed to his house in Milan in the middle of the night. ”

“After talking to Ivan and the club, everything is clear. And I am here, in my city, in my club, I love and in a land that has given me a lot. I hope I can repay the place where I trust “.

Milan are still looking for Gennaro Gattuso‘s successor as coach, but they are expected to appoint coach Marco Giampaolo from Sampdoria.

Lionel Messi’s middle son cheers for Real Madrid to annoy his brother



Lionel Messi has confessed that his three-year-old son Mateo cheers for Real Madrid to annoy his brother Tiago. When it comes to his football allegiance, he chooses to take a contrarian position.

Messi said that sometimes the television was on and his son Mateo cheered Madrid’s goals to make his brother Tiago get annoyed.

Maeo enjoys winding up several of his family members, not only his brother Tiago. Messi’s middle son has even made fun of him over recent collapse of Barcelona against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League. He also said with a laugh that when he was playing at home and was going for a kick-about with Mateo, his son said to him that “You’re Barca and I’m Liverpool, because I’ll beat you’. He’s got a lot to learn,” .

Messi has played down his country’s chances of winning the tournament and is getting ready to represent Argentina at the Copa America in Brazil.

The 31-year-old football star has twice reached the final of the competition, in 2015 and in 2016, however, they were beaten by Chile on penalties on both occasions.

 Having contested four of the past five finals, however, Argentina have lost all of them and their last continental triumph came back in 1993 in Ecuador. And Messi is not convinced that they will be challenging in 2019 because  he believes that the squad is undergoing a transition. He said that Argentina was going through a process of change, but they went with the same excitement as always.

Messi admits he is still feeling the frustration with Barcelona’s treble dreams having dashed in the closing weeks of the campaign.

Despite their victory at La Liga, a shock 4-0 defeat to Liverpool in the UEFa Champions League semi-final’s second leg saw them crash out of Europe, while they were beaten by Valencia in the Copa del Rey final.

In spite of those disappointments, Messi has felt good in the Argentina camp with Nicaragua on Saturday.
