The Rossoneri legend slams the running of the Italian club in recent times and says that the Serie A giants' poor form leaves him feeling both angry and disappointed

Paolo Maldini says that AC Milan's struggles this season have gone a long way towards destroying the good work that they have done over recent years.

The Rossoneri sit 11th in Serie A following a shock 4-2 loss to home to Parma on Sunday, some 12 points off a Europa League spot with 10 games left to play, and were beaten 5-1 over two legs by Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last 16.

And Maldini, who spent 24 years at San Siro, winning six Scudetti and five European Cups, has slammed the running of the club following a second successive season of disappointment.

"Inside of me there's a mixture of anger and disappointment," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport, "not so much because of the results but because I get the impression they're throwing away what was built with hard work over the last 10 years.

"That makes me feel awful. I know how much work there was behind all those glories, what it took to build such a beatufiul story. It makes me crazy to see everything destroyed.

"They cannot compete with Juventus or the top 10 teams in Europe. There isn't a project."

Maldini believes that coach Clarence Seedorf has been left with an impossible task, however, in turning around the Rossoneri's fortunes.

"It's obvious that he's not an expert but he has a lot of courage and personality but not even Pep Guardiola could do anything," he remarked.

"This isn't Clarence's fault. [Pippo] Inzaghi spent two years with the youth team and this is important."
