Paolo Maldini confirmed that he will retire from football at the end of this campaign.
Maldini, who has been a loyal servant to the Rossoneri for his entire professional career, has always maintained his stance on calling it a day at the end of this term.
The Italian international will turn 41-years-old in June and he admits that his legs will not be able to carry him through another tough season next year.
"I am still here today because I still have fun playing," Maldini told the club's official website.
"I think that you need to be lucky and avoid major injuries to enjoy a career like mine.
"However, even my body has begun to feel the strains, and this will be my last season. I don't think that my body will allow me to play beyond this [term] at the highest level."
The Italian international is set to hang up his boots in May, despite some voices suggesting that he should go on another year.
