AC Milan legend Maldini: Difficult to turn down Chelsea

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini admits it was difficult to turn down Chelsea last month.

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti wanted Maldini to join his coaching staff and the former defender explained: "It was hard to say no to Chelsea, but I do not want to share the reasons why at the moment.

"When some serious proposals arrive I'll think about it (coaching). In the meantime, I will continue with my personal business."
