Paolo Maldini

Paolo Maldini

God chiselled him from stardust and defending.

<p>When it comes to the classic footballing taunt of “show us your medals”, few can match Maldini, 25 years playing at the highest level and 1000 appearances for club and country.


Wow, 95-02 was quite a barren spell. Just two league titles in that time. He’s got to be disapointed with that poor return.

Spot on, Tom.  I think the whole point of the graphic was to show how rubbish his career was for long stretches.

Is there a player with a more prestigious medal collection? I’d really like to know. No one I can think of would match it.

I think Ryan Giggs tops him with 31 if you include the
Community Shield. Alan Hansen gets close with 22.

Cheers Tom…still 26 medals. Phwoar! I’d have been happy with an “Excellent” sticker for me maths homework. Maldini, what a legend.

Legend indeed. Would have been great to see him get a ‘full house’ in ‘94. Just a pelanty kick away…

Prove you're not a bot:
What nationality is the original Ronaldo?
