Paolo MaldiniThe Milan legend and Rossoneri’s technical field director, on a radio podcast m2o He talked about his relationship with music and some situations on the court.
On releases only after victories – “Yes, I would say yes. We won often and that helped us. It’s normal, you don’t feel like quitting if the game goes bad, you feel shame, or defeat, you should be a part of the sports world instead. You always have to be very careful-You can get some people’s feedback. He also played in the European Cups and won there as well, sometimes scoring two goals.”
On fellows who exaggerated–“It’s a choice, and sometimes an excuse, not to understand the moment. Being able to keep your feet on the ground is essential, you must have a tough upbringing. At home, but also with youth teams. It started when I was 10, thinking about schedules, sacrifice, and playing with the team. Before you went to school until first year, there were a lot of things that could lead you to do other things. They set goals, rules, and schedules for you. You didn’t have to think of yourself but of the team. I was happy when my kids decided to have this experience“.
On Discipline – “Social media has a life of its own, it is a part of a player’s life. There has been a lot of freedom because there are fewer paparazzi, and fewer curious people, you can live your life in a more free and natural way. The idea that they go out more or Less, I don’t know… I got to know my body along the way, I learned to manage myself, I even make mistakes. Try, make mistakes, but learn. That’s what I tell them, every father should do this to his children.”
In my spare time – “Yes, I would go out, but I work to please myself. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I never do drugs. The purpose of my life has been to do my job. I had set myself very clear goals, and sometimes I make mistakes. I think That this is a process, instinctive, a little tried and a bit wrong, beyond my limits. When you’re really late in the evening, at eight you have to practice… You also test yourself, How will I be the next day? I was physically strong and often measured myself against yourself “.
ON FATHER CESARE – “I also remembered I was in the car with my dad and he said ‘I should talk to you’ and it bothered me. In hindsight I thank God for speaking to me. I make an introduction with my kids, and tell them I know it bothers them because the same thing happened to me. But not football.”
on the children of the players -”When I gave birth to my first child, I can’t deny that I was very happy. I saw my brother-in-law, with my sister, he had two girls … Just dance, dance, dance. And because I was born in this environment, I was happy that I had a son, and then a second too and my wife was happy. I was happy, but then very upset: the footballer’s father pressured, Eyes between 10 and 12 years old when you were still a child. All this attention bothered me, but they are in particular. It was a difficult road to assert himself.”
for example – “When I saw Franco Baresi playing he was the bestEven in training, she died against the goalscorer. Speak a little, do a lot of facts. It was an example that showed me the way I actually felt.”
After the comeback – “The first three months, with the derby at the start and Barcelona after… What you’re missing is the adrenaline in the game. It’s the thing that changed you the most at first, and then you get over it. Then do normal things, like have coffee with friends, which I’ve never done before. I didn’t have a life with fixed commitments and schedules. A second life, this is a third life: between the office and Milanello, where they train, where you stay in the fresh air. You sit on the bench and watch the training and you talk to the players and the coach. For twelve years I did nothing else, I was in the United States, I wanted to open a hotel for two years, and then I changed my plans. I enjoyed children, wife and friends, things I had overlooked. I wanted to do my profession to the fullest.”
