Leonardo To Leave Milan, Paolo Maldini Will Return As Director - Report

Wholesale changes will be made as Berlusconi clenches his fists...
Head coach Leonardo will leave Milan in the summer and Paolo Maldini will return in a director role, according to latest reports being floated by Il Corriere dello Sport.

Adriano Galliani is preparing for new horizons and will wave arrivederci to his coach who is expected to return to Brazil and replace Carlos Dunga on the Selecao bench. Milan will promote Mauro Tassotti and Filippo Galli to first team coach and assistant coach respectively.

They will also lure Paolo Maldini back to football, albeit as a director behind the scenes. All this has been authorised by Silvio Berlusconi who has become piqued with the rate of progress he has seen thus far.

All this follows reports of how Maldini rejected the chance to come back to play for the final games of the season - something his father echoed when he said there was little prospect of seeing the great back on the playing field.
