Blog of 11 live soccer



Paolo Maldini turned 50 on Tuesday, June 26th. By nature, the legend of Italian football is always looking ahead, but now makes an exception for Gadgeta Delo Sport. He agreed to return to the past for 50 questions on his 50th anniversary.
1. Who is today Paolo Maldini?
- Former athlete, husband, father, happy man.
2. Five mentioned, one for a decade. . .
- One sporting and one outboard. 1-10:entering my school (it gave me so much, though I did not finish it) and the first touch with the ball. 11-20:Meeting with Adriana and debut in Series A. 21-30:Birth of Christian and Mondiale 90 plus first CASE. 31-40:Daniel`s birth and Manchester United final predicted by 11livesoccer at the WSO. 41-50:The loss of my parents and the day of my quitting football.
3. Is the best year?
- Two are -;1996 and 2001 due to the birth of my children. And my best season is 2002/03 as a combination of strength, technique and thought.
4. What would Dad Cesare and Mama Marisa tell you today?
`Not the words were important, but the feeling when they smiled. Huge satisfaction brings this to your proud parents.
5. In 50 years, your father won the World Cup 82 as a coaching assistant to Beardzot and at that time you were in Milan`s adolescents. Have you ever wondered what would be your life at 50?
`No, I never imagined a different age, and I did not wonder what it means to my dad being 50. I followed his work, but I really appreciated it only when I grew up.
6. Is time going faster now or when you played?
- It`s flying right now. Before it was running slower because of the constant thought of the next game.

7. What is your relationship with Christian and Daniel?
- I like playing and joking with them. I want them to be serious people, and with my wife, if we need them, we`re screaming. They are great kids and I`m happy with them.
8. What role did the family have in your human and professional growth?
- It was my polar star -;and the family that created me and what I created. The values of my parents were found in Adriana.
9. For these 50 years there were 5 popes, 9 US presidents, many figures in Italian culture and politics. Which person left your strongest trail?
`I`m not particularly religious, but it was very exciting to meet Pope John Paul II and Pope Francis. Unique sensation!
10. In the first months of Berlusconi and Saky how many times did you think:These are crazy! ?
`For Berlusconi, I was hoping he would be right, and Saky often thought he was crazy. Even today I sometimes think it. Without him, however, he would not have the Milan epoch. This means that sometimes a bit of madness is needed.
11. T-shirt is second player`s skin:only hyperbole or truth?
`At least for me it`s true. I`ve only worn two jerseys:the red-black and the azure-blue. You make your real choice not as a kid, and when you gradually realize that you have the same goals as your team. I never thought of leaving Milan and the club never wanted to sell me.
12. Who was the best Maldini?
- Physically he was that of the 1991/92 and 1993/94 seasons, but I choose Maldini from 2002/03. I became an esthete because that`s how Daddy taught me. I always wanted to make the perfect match, but that`s impossible. Can you just get closer?
