AC Milan captain Maldini welcomes Dida apology

AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini has praised teammate Nelson Dida after his public apology yesterday to fans for his theatrics at Celtic.

Before the warm-up for yesterday's shock defeat by Empoli, Dida walked all the way round the pitch at San Siro, pausing to bow down to every sector of the crowd.

Maldini said: "We are men and make mistakes. Recognising his weakness is a sign of his strength."
