AC Milan have refused to comment the words of Paolo Maldini or Ralf Rangnick but a phone call has happened with the German coach.

If theoretically I have to think about going somewhere else, I should to be able to do things my way”, he declared in an interview with Mitteldeutsche Zeitung.

The reaction of Maldini was immediate and strong inviting the German to “learn respect before learning Italian“. “Having never spoken to Rangnick, I do not understand on what basis his statements are based, also because I have never been told anything about the ownership.

Speaking of a role with full managerial powers in both the sporting and technical areas, he invades areas where professionals with regular work contracts. I have some advice for him, before learning Italian he should review the general concepts of respect, as there are colleagues who, despite the many difficulties of the moment, are trying to finish the season in a very professional way, putting the best of Milan before their professional pride”, declared Paolo Maldini.

However, Paolo Maldini is not the only one irritated by the comments of Rangnck. According to Il Giornale, Ivan Gazidis, CEO of Milan, did not like the last sortie of Ralf Rangnick.
