Ex-AC Milan captain Maldini calm over tax probe

Former AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini is 'calm and serene' after it emerged on Thursday that he is being investigated over allegations of bribing a tax official to gain access to tax records.

The Italy and AC Milan great and his wife, Adriana Fossa, are among 43 people being investigated in Milan.

The tax official in question, Luciano Bressi, was detained in the probe last summer.

A statement from Maldini's lawyer Danilo Buongiorno as reported on Gazzetta dello Sport read: "Maldini is calm and serene.

"In contesting the accusations which are unfounded, he is certain to prove his and his wife's absolute detachment, of which their positions would be that of a party of victims and not of those being investigated."
