It was announced today that Paolo Maldini’s mother Marisa had passed away.

She was the wife of Milan legend Cesare Maldini, and of course gave birth to one of the greatest defenders to ever play the game.

In this time of sadness, one Milano legend reached out to another, as Inter icon Javier Zanetti sent his condolences to Paolo.

His tweet reads:

“In this moment of pain, I am close to Paolo Maldini and all of his family. A hug. #Maldini”

A touching message and one that shows the class of the Argentine, but the way that football can bring people together, even if they were once rivals on the pitch.

We at SempreInter send our thoughts to Paolo Maldini and his family.
