    I think Paolo Maldini needs to retire now, as he is 37, and too old.

    You're an idot. If you haven't seen him at all, don't judge him on age. How about, "Does Maldini need to retire?" for the title of the thread, instead

    What if he offered to retire now, rather than May, but left it upo to them? Would they accept, or reject, as he is 37?

    You really are uninformed on the issue, and no Maldini does not need to retire this instant. I'm pretty sure he is retiring at the end of this season anyway, even if he didn't, I could accept him playing for one more.

    The man is a legend and still an effective player for us. Mind you he is not in the top physical form, but as you so noted he is 37 years old. I'm still impressed by some of his performances, and he still has some magic left in him. So again, no Maldini does not need to retire just yet, let him finish this season.

    I am extremely uninformed, yes. I was just taking a shot in the dark, as there was talk of Gallas to replace Maldini in January.

    Unlikely. It was rumored he wanted to come to us, but between the amount Chelsea would want for him, and our lack of interest...

    Nat'l Team:
    Maldini has stated that he will see out his contract, which means next season will be his last.

    for as long as he remains important and productive to the team and stays healthy, let him continue until the end of his contract. He is already a world legendary player. Alot now depends on his fitness and physical health if he is to continue.

    Unfortunately, SoCal
    The Captain hasn't been in the best form all year, but he still has moments of brilliance (2 goals in 16 minutes at Reggina). He's injured, he doesn't recover as fast ... and the only regular on the backline not in his mid/late 30s is Nesta.

    Also, remember, like 80% of the goals Milan gave up this season were off set pieces ...

    Maldini has been true to Milan for about twenty years
    there is no way that Milan would get rid of him he is still great and still an asset to the team

    Let him play until his heart is content, or until he slows the team down

    Ditto. He should have retired a few years ago. He's the same guy who couldn't out jump a 3rd rate Korean attacker in WC 2002. He's a good looking polite guy who sells quite a few shirts, etc. and is generally protected by the commentators.
