AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini is already looking forward to next month's big game against Juventus.

"It's great because there's such a great rivalry between the two clubs and Serie A isn't the same without Juve," the defender said. "I think it'll be a great spectacle."

Milan will try and put the shocking scenes during their abandoned game with Atalanta to the back of their minds, but Maldini won't forget the day in a hurry.

"I think one of the most striking images was the sight of children in the stadium who could understand what was going on," he recalled.

"The fans called out to me and told me that they didn't want us to play. I told them that it wasn't up to us players, but I told the referee that the situation was very delicate."
