As AC Captain Maldini made his farewell lap of honour to wave at San Siro fan a a small group in the Curva Sud staged a protest, holding banners and chanting the name of Franco Baresi, who wore the armband before Maldini took over in 1997. “There is only one captain,” said these supporters. Regarding Manager Ancelotti's departure, it seems the club have decided to delay the announcement after they failed to guarantee automatic qualification for next season's Champions League following the 3-2 defeat at home to Roma on Sunday.

Finally, (AP)Del Piero speaks out on the sacking of Ranieri at Juventus with, Del Piero 'didn't understand' Ranieri senting a scathing message to Claudio Ranieri after scoring two on his comeback to the first XI.“I think that Ranieri has a way of seeing things that only he can truly explain” said Del Piero. Captain Juventus had been repeatedly dropped by the previous tactician, but Ciro Ferrara put him in the starting XI and he scored twice in the 3-0 win at Siena.
