AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini rejects technical director role as he insists 'I did not believe there was the basis for a winning team'
AC Milan great Paolo Maldini has rejected an offer to be technical director of the Serie A club, he said on Facebook on Tuesday.
The 48-year-old said he would have had to share the role with Massimiliano Mirabelli, who has been appointed sporting director, but has yet to take up the role.
In case of disagreement with Mirabelli, Maldini said Marco Fassone, who will become CEO following the club's takeover by Chinese investors, would have had the last word.
