Ex-AC Milan chief Mirabelli: Great players don't always make great directors

Former AC Milan director of sport Massimiliano Mirabelli has taken aim at current football chief Paolo Maldini.

Mirabelli has questioned the work of the Rossonero great.

“Those who have played at the very highest levels are not necessarily capable of being directors," said Mirabelli.

“Paolo is at the beginning and is working hard. He will need time to gain confidence in the job.

“People who say I put the club in financial difficulty is said by those who don't know the facts.

“We had to create a new team in only one transfer window, we had to buy ten players.

“We renewed Gianluigi Donnarumma's contract, and with an agent like Mino Raiola, that isn't easy.

“This has benefitted the club today. I want to see now if and how Donnarumma's contract will be extended.

“Then we launched Rino Gattuso as coach."
