Paolo Maldini returns to AC Milan as development director

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini returned to the club on Sunday, accepting the newly created role of sporting strategy and development director.

Maldini, 50, helped Milan win the Serie A title seven times, making 902 appearances in 25 seasons between 1984 and 2009.

His arrival is one of a number of changes since hedge fund Elliott Management took over the club from Li Yonghong's board earlier this summer, starting with the hiring of Leonardo as general manager.

"Milan's new era is further strengthened by the name of Paolo Maldini, who becomes the new strategic development director of the club's sporting area," a club statement said.

"Paolo is a living legend in the Rossoneri's history for his exceptional class, talent, leadership, loyalty and record of success, which is unparalleled.

"These qualities will play a decisive role in taking Milan back to where they deserve to be."
