Silvio Berlusconi has dismissed Paolo Maldini’s statements that he’ll always be there for Milan and says he doesn’t believe the legendary #3 is available.

In a recent interviews Maldini admitted that “it is strange that there are so few big ex-players [working for Milan] as it would give a sense of tradition” and that “my love and the love of my family for Milan is not in question, it’s been so many years now that there’s a Maldini with Milan.”

Paolo also conceded that “It’s strange to think of Milan without Berlusconi after 30 years. If in the end he had to give in the club, it’d be an act of love for that team that he loves deeply.”

Former players, pundits and fans are all calling for Maldini to get a role at the club but it seems that it’s not going to happen in the near future. Silvio Berlusconi was asked about the legendary defender today and simply answered that he doesn’t think a return is possible at this point.

“The possibility that Maldini will enter the club? I’ve heard this voice too but I don’t think that Paolo is available because he’s entered as a partner in an American club and has therefore gone on a different path.” Maldini is the co-owner of NASL club Miami FC alongside television rights entrepreneur Riccardo Silva and they’re working to have the team play at the MLS soon.

The 47-year-old Maldini seems open to the idea of working for the club where he spent his entire career but Berlusconi & Galliani haven’t really kept the door open for him since he retired in 2009.

What the hell do you think he was going to do after all these years? Sit and wait for your to realize how important he is to the club and its fans till he grows old and senile like you?

Does Maldini have any management experience? Does Rui Costa? Why not Rivera? Why not Baresi?

ok pal maybe maldini didn”t have management experience but zanetti didn’t have management experience too, but rui costa as sporting director benfica doing great job from 2008 until now he saw and sign young promising talent like axel witsel,ramirez (suning),david luiz,angel di maria, jan oblak, nico gaitan,garay, coentrao,matic, bernardo silva,andres gomes and now renato sanches imagine if rui costa doing the same with milan

Same Maldini you and your friend Galliani never gave any chance? I’m sure he’s laughing at your comments because he knows you are disgracing yourself more with such statement and every football fan (not just Milan fans) knows how you and your friend degraded AC Milan, the club you once made great.
Just leave.

Just sell the damn thing and let our rebuilding commence early enough. Thanks for our pass, less you say we are unappreciative. But its right about time you sell and you can’t blame us; it’s football and that’s how we play
