Paolo Mal­dini de­fends son Chris­tian: ‘he’s in Malta, with real agent’

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

For­mer Mi­lan leg­end Paolo Mal­dini has come to the de­fence of his son Chris­tian, who is on loan with Ham­run Spar­tans, say­ing that sto­ries ap­pear­ing in the Ital­ian me­dia are false.

Paolo Mal­dini is re­ported by the Gazzetta dello Sport as say­ing that, “Chris­tian is in Malta with his true agent; he has never been called up by Serie D side Lecco. It is not right that he is ac­cused of lack of pro­fes­sion­al­ism; he does not de­serve it.”

Paolo Mal­dini was re­ply­ing to a story that ap­peared in the Ital­ian me­dia, claim­ing that Chris­tian had not turned up for a trial with Lecco, a trial that was ar­ranged by what turned out to be a man falsely claim­ing to be Chris­tian’s foot­ball agent.

“Chris­tian has never spo­ken to Lecco,” his father said. “And he has never re­ceived an of­fer from them… It is clear that Lecco are talk­ing with a false agent claim­ing to be my son’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive. This story is base­less. It is not my fam­ily’s cus­tom not to at­tend train­ing ses­sions.”

The 21-year-old is cur­rently on loan with Ham­run Spar­tans from his club Reg­giana.

Ital­ian me­dia re­ports quoted the false agent say­ing that Chris­tian had not turned up for the trial be­cause “this week he can­not make it”. But Chris­tian did not know any­thing about this ar­range­ment, giv­ing that his real agent was not con­tacted.
