Report: Paolo Maldini set for coaching role with Paris Saint-Germain

The legendary Italian defender has been out of the game since calling time on his playing days in the summer of 2009 but he is now ready to accept a job with the Ligue 1 outfit

Paolo Maldini will reportedly take up a coaching role with Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

The legendary Italian defender has been out of the game since calling time on his illustrious playing career in 2009.

However, Maldini has been strongly linked with PSG ever since former AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti took charge of the Ligue 1 leaders during the winter break.

And Maldini is now primed to accept a coaching role with the French club in June, according to Le Parisien.

The 43-year-old Italian attended Ancelotti's first league game in charge of PSG, against Toulouse on January 14, and sporting director Leonardo, another former Rossoneri coach, claimed afterwards that Maldini was considering joining the French outfit.

Maldini subsequently claimed that nothing had been agreed with the club but did express his interest in moving to the French capital.

The former Italy international made league 647 Serie A appearances for Milan during his 24 years with the club as a player and recently expressed his dissatisfaction that the Rossoneri never offered him the opportunity to become a part of their coaching staff.
