Chelsea assistant coach Ray Wilkins has played down the prospect of Milan legend Paolo Maldini joining the backroom staff at Stamford Bridge.

Maldini has just retired after 25 years with Milan, where he played under new Stamford Bridge boss Carlo Ancelotti.

“I know him well and had the pleasure of playing with him, but I don’t know if he’ll come,” Wilkins told BBC 5 Live.

“He’s a very good friend of Carlo but I think it’s too soon after his playing career – he wants a rest.”

Maldini retired at the end of the 2008-09 season after an illustrious career in which he won seven Serie A titles and five Champions League trophies.

Ancelotti has agreed to work with current Chelsea coach Wilkins, who speaks Italian, but he is also thought to want to bring in a fellow countryman.
