Live football Maldini: We are ready to defend Ibra if anyone intervenes with racism
Milan`s technical director Paolo Maldini became another member of the club who defended Zlatan Ibrahimovic from accusations of racism over his quarrels with Romelu Lukaku during the derby with Inter, which the Nerazzurri won 2-1 after expelling the Swede in the second half.
I`ve always had a very good instinct. I have the image of a balanced person and I think I am. As for what happened in the derby, it was an ugly incident. It lasted too long, but it`s in the past. We`ll see what happens. If anyone tries to interfere with racism, we are ready to protect our player, because Ibra has nothing to do with racism. He apologized to the team for leaving him with 10 people on the field. Lukaku attacked his teammates for no reason, so Zlatan stood up for them. It just took too long and had to end much earlier. I would expect nothing more from him than to be Ibra. His statistics are outstanding. This is a footballer who has great desire, hunger and determination.
Canluigi Donnarumma`s new contract? We froze negotiations on new contracts until the transfer window closes. We are now very active in the market. The club from live soccer matches
allowed us to attract new players, as we managed to meet our budget. We have to be grateful, we already have a team that can go all the way this season. We now have a better team, we are more aware of our abilities and we do not feel the tension. I`ve always said that if we don`t win the Scudetto, it won`t be a failure. It would be disappointing only if in the last 10 rounds we are in a good position for the title and do not try to win it, because it would show a lack of ambition, Maldini commented to Sky Sport Italy.
