AC Milan and Italy legend Paolo Maldini was absent from training in Milan two days ago, for removing kidney stones, it’s reported.
He is the second Italian legend after Alessandro Del Piero to suffer from the health issue in the space of one month.
Maldini, who turns 52 in a few weeks, was also diagnosed with coronavirus back in March but has made a full recovery ever since.
On Wednesday Ivan Gazidis held a meeting with the Milan squad, without Maldini.writes that reason behind the technical director’s absence was him undergoing ‘minor surgery’ to treat kidney stones.
The website adds that he was present yesterday to watch players from the Rossoneri finish their preparations for the semi-final second leg of the Coppa Italia against Juventus today.
