Maldini ruled out by injury

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that Paolo Maldini will not be available for the return leg of the semi-final against Manchester United FC.

AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that Paolo Maldini will not be available for the return leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final against Manchester United FC on Wednesday.

Kaladze ready
The Rossoneri captain was included in the squad for the game at San Siro but has failed to recover from a persistent knee injury. "He will follow the team only to give his support but he is not available," Ancelotti said on Tuesday night. The 38-year-old defender will likely be replaced by Kakha Kaladze, who has fully overcome a tendon problem. "I am ready and available for selection," the Georgian international, 29, said. "I have been playing for a while using painkillers but now I'm fine and I am ready for Manchester United."
