Maldini attacks AC Milan management

Paolo Maldini has blasted AC Milan management over the lack of support he received in the aftermath of Sunday's row with fans.

The Milan captain, after 48 hours of reflection, snapped: "AC Milan did not defend me.

"From the chairman down nobody had a word of solidarity towards me."

On his farewell at the San Siro, Maldini lamented: "Everything was going so well, then that stunt by those people occurred. It was all pre-organised."

Asked about his reaction to the fans barracking him, Maldini explained: "I was hurt. I was a wounded man, I have not had a chance to think. I responded to premeditated action."
