Club: AC Milan
History: Paolo Maldini (born June 26, 1968, Milan) is a legendary Italian football player. He is the son of Cesare Maldini. Paolo Maldini plays as a defender and, despite being naturally right-footed, predominantly plays the position of left back, although he sometimes plays at centre back. Throughout his long career, he has remained a one club man with A.C. Milan.
One of the greatest defenders of all time, he was arguably the best defender of his time at the peak of his career, considered by some as the greatest left-back of all time and remains well known for influential captaincy, ice-cool temperament and flawless defending. He is still playing at the very highest level, which is confirmed by inclusion to the FIFPro World XI in 2005, nomination to the UEFA Champions League 2004-2005 most valuable defender title, second place in Golden Foot nominations in 2005, and a top-ten finish in the voting for the 2005 FIFA World Player of the Year.
