Video: Inter Fans Produce Classy Tribute to Honour Late AC Milan Legend Cesare Maldini

Sometimes football fans put petty rivalries aside to pay tribute to the people who truly deserve it, and AC Milan legend Cesare Maldini is certainly one of those.

It was announced on Sunday morning that Maldini – father of Paolo – had passed away at the age of 84, leaving one half of Milan in mourning.

Maldini – like his son – was a genuine AC Milan legend, winning four league titles with the Rossoneri between 1954 and 1962 and also captaining Milan to their first European Cup triumph in 1963.

He would later go on to manage them during a glittering coaching career, winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup and Coppa Italia in 1972-73.

His penchant for winning trophies whilst wearing the famous red and black shirt cause Inter fans plenty of heartbreak over several different decades, but supporters of AC’s bitter rivals still managed to produce a classy tribute to Maldini ahead of their match with Torino this evening:

Well played. Absolutely brilliant stuff.
