The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Looks like Maldini’s son is going to follow in his footsteps and play some football.
In the video below, Paolo Maldini’s 5 year old son tackles Clarence Seedorf at Milan’s European Cup celebration party at the San Siro. May 2007. It’s quite a tackle by Maldini’s son, as he stretches out his legs to try to win the ball from Seedorf!
Hat tip to the NY Times soccer blog Goal for pointing me to the video:
The video featuring Daniel Maldini’s tackle on you has become quite popular on YouTube. We are eagerly waiting for Christian and Daniel Maldini to step up to the Primavera squad in the near future and the first team further down the road. Can you give us any comments regarding their footballing progress?
Ha! I know. But I don’t really know how they’re progressing, but especially the young one has plenty of talent. He’s very, very aggressive for such a young one. It was very funny that day.
You have to give them time, they will develop themselves, but it is in their genes. Let’s see if they have the same passion as their father and their grandpa.
