Gianluigi Buffon now has two Maldini shirts in his collection, one from his Italy teammate Paolo and now a second from son Daniel after last night’s Coppa Italia game between Juventus and AC Milan.
The Sport Bible reports how the Juventus goalkeeper after the 1-1 draw in the semi final first leg at the San Siro, when it came to swapping shirts, he only had eyes for Maldini Jr.
Buffon, 42 has outlasted all of his teammates and former opponents to mix it up with their sons in the professional game.

He played alongside Enrico Chiesa for Parma before crossing paths with son Federico Chiesa in Juventus-Fiorentina as well as turning out for the Azzurri together.
He also played against Ballon d’Or winner George Weah on his professional debut in 1995 and went on to play in the same PSG side as his son Timothy, who now plays for Lille.
He also swapped shirts with Marcus Thuram after being colleagues with his old man Lillian during their days at Parma.
