Cesare Maldini passes away

Milan hails 'great man'

Former Italy coach and Milan defender Cesare Maldini has passed away at the age of 84.

Maldini won four Serie A titles and the 1963 European Cup as a Milan player, before managing the club from 1972 to 1974.

A statement from the Rossoneri read: "All of Milan, all the people and the Milan figures express condolences to Mrs Maldini, their children and grandchildren."

The club added on Twitter: "Goodbye, dear Cesare. Today the world loses a great man, and we lose a page of our history. You will be missed."

Maldini took over as Italy boss in 1996, with his son, Paolo, as the team’s captain.

After briefly returning to guide Milan in 2001, Maldini became Paraguay coach, taking the team to the 2002 World Cup's second round, where they lost 1-0 to Germany due to a late Oliver Neuville goal.

Maldini made 347 appearances as a Milan player, scoring three goals.
