Paolo Maldini Targets Second Place For AC Milan

The 40-year-old would like to end his career by ensuring the Rossoneri finish the season on a high...

Milan legend Paolo Maldini, who is set to retire at the end of this campaign, has expressed regrets that Milan were unable to capture any trophies in his final season.

"We are doing well right now, but there are a few regrets," he admitted to Telelombardia on Wednesday.

The former Azzurri international is now confident that his side will finish runners-up this season, even if mathematically there is still a slim chance they could catch league-leaders Inter at the top of the table.

"We must now try to win our remaining matches and consolidate second place. We are playing some beautiful football. Juventus have had some problems, however, a lot can still happen.

"We want to put space between ourselves and Juve to make sure of second place."

Maldini is expected to be in the starting XI when the Rossoneri host Juventus on Sunday. Currently, four points separate the two sides in the standings.
