Maldini A True One Club Player

Post by NewBornProdigy » 31 May 2009, 18:55

Paoloa Maldini Retired today after a 2-0 win over Florentina
Here's his Career in pics

Image
January 1985, Maldini makes his debut as a 16 year old

Image
The first of his 126 Italy caps come in 1988 against Yugoslavia

Image
He gets the first of his incredible 5 European Cup winners medals in the Nou Camp in 1989

Image
His second in 1994 against Barca

Image
And after watching Roberto Baggio miss, Italy and Maldini become the first side to lose a World Cup final on peanlties

Image
Father Cesare Maldini, who also represented AC Milan and Italy, coaches the national side to another shoot-out defeat, this time to hosts France, in the quarter-finals of the 1998 tournament

Image
Maldini almosts wins the Euros in 2000, but for a Trezugeut golden Goal in the final

Image
Scoring in the first minute, Maldini sets AC on their way to an obvious win over liverpool in the 2005 champions leauge final

Image
But Maldini gets the last laugh over 'Pool in 2007

Image
In milan he met Adriana Fossa, his wife

Image
72,621 are at the San Siro for Maldini's final home game and his 901st cap

Image
Maldini's send-off is marred by a banner displayed by the club's Ultra fans. “Thank you, Skipper. On the pitch you were an infinite champion, but you failed to show respect towards those who made you rich,” it reads

Image
Just today, 31st May 2009 Maldini leads Milan out to face Florentina

Image
24 years after his debut, Maldini retires for good... as a player

Image
But his 12 year old soon is living up to the family name throughout the Youth setup

I can't take any credit for any of this, I saw the idea and the photos on the BBC and thought it would be cool to post it on EF
