Paolo Maldini / Frederic Massara Best Sporting Director of the Year
Milan won the Italian championship after over ten years, and did so thanks to the work of an outstanding duo in the sector. Paolo Maldini, amazing on the pitch and star of the rosso nero era with Berlusconi and Galliani, has proved equally successful in terms of technical direction, interpreted with the competence and the seriousness he so ably demonstrated as a player. He was accompanied by Frederic Massara who displayed the same great technical ability he demonstrated in his previous experience alongside Sabatini in Rome. In tandem they have achieved what every director dreams of doing in football: succeed in winning by discovering and launching new talents, keeping control over investment and reacting positively to the sacrifice of losing champions like Donnarumma and Kessie.
