Maldini slams UEFA verdict

Published Add your comment

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini has joined the condemnation of UEFA´s decision to ban Dida for two Champions League games after his theatrical reaction to being tapped by a pitch-invading Celtic supporter.

UEFA could still challenge their independent control and disciplinary body´s decision to ban Dida and fine Celtic £25,000 following the security breach at Parkhead in the October 3 match.

Veteran defender Maldini told "I don´t understand this difference in treatment. More than 10 years ago because of a small bottle thrown at a goalkeeper, they banned us from our ground for two match-days. Dida made a mistake, but I repeat, I don´t understand the disparity of treatment."
