Maldini to retire

We knew it would come sometime soon, it was only a matter of time.
"I am still here today because I still have fun playing," Maldini told the club's official Web site. "I think that you need to be lucky and avoid major injuries to enjoy a career like mine. However, even my body has begun to feel the strains, and this will be my last season. I don't think that my body will allow me to play beyond this [term] at the highest level."
Paolo was one of the all-time greats. On the All-Time XI, the 41 year old's got a spot in the back line.
