Maldini announced his retirement against the backdrop of victory
AC Milan captain Paolo Maldini has revealed he will retire at the end of the season.
The iconic defender, 39, made the announcement after Milan's 4-2 victory against Boca Juniors in the Fifa Club World Cup final in Japan on Sunday.
"Today I truly feel satisfied with what I have achieved," said the former Italy star, who earlier this year won his fifth Champions League title.
"In June I will absolutely retire without any regrets."
Since making his league debut in 1985, Maldini has enjoyed a host of honours with Milan, including two Intercontinental Cups (the forerunner of the Club World Cup), four European SuperCups and seven Serie A titles.
