Daniel Maldini, 15-year-old AC Milan Primavera player could be the next big thing in Italy. The 5th generation of Maldini family has made their entrance into football. Only Cesare and Paolo Maldini could achieve glory among the Maldini at AC Milan.
Daniel Maldini was born on October 11, 2001, as the second child to Paolo Maldini. His brother is Christian Maldini, 20 who plays as a defender for Pro Sesto Calcio, a Serie D team. Christan had failed to impress in the Primavera which has to lead AC Milan to let him out on a free transfer.
Daniel is held with high regards at the AC Milan Primavera camps and is touted as the next possible star in Italy. Daniel is a versatile player who can play at his ancestor’s position of Centre backs and Fullbacks. But his primary role at the academy is the position of striker which he is trying to perfect.
He will be the first of the Maldini generation to play as a striker considering the fact that every single Maldini has been a defender for the club.
Daniel has a good skill set and his movement and ball control are precisely what a striker at his age would want. He is composed and calm just like his father. He is representing AC Milan at the ALLIEVI NAZIONALI UNDER 16 and is one of the crucial players who the team tends to depend upon.
He came to limelight when the video of Daniel Maldini tackling Clarence Seedorf went Viral on the Internet. Since then the world is looking at his progress to fulfill the legacy of the Maldini’s at AC Milan and a player to wear the No 3 Jersey and walk into the stadium playing for the Rossoneri in the future.
