Ambrosini Massimo

Things to Know:

The Scudetto badge is back on 1999-2000 Milan’s shirts due the 1998-1999 Serie A’s victory. The team did not repeat its successful season in 1998–99, and fell back to third in Serie A, as well as crashing out of the Champions League, following a lackluster performance in the First Group Phase. In fact, Milan ended up last in the group, and was not even qualifying for the remainder of the UEFA Cup.  1999-2000 was also Andriy Shevchenko’s first season with Milan A.C., and managed to become top scorer already in his debut season. The Ukrainian further enhanced his reputation as a fearsome striker, which was fortunate for Milan, considering Oliver Bierhoff’s scoring tally’s decline. The team showed signs of being over the hill, having had several aging players while it won the league in 1998–99.

Boban Zvonimir

Did you Know?

A.C. Milan signed Boban in 1991 in a deal worth £8 million. Milan immediately loaned him to Bari, as they felt he needed time to settle in Italy without counting as one of the 3 non-Italian players the club was limited to at the time. Bari were relegated in this season, but Boban ably demonstrated his ability in the team and was recalled to Milan. He stayed in the club for nine seasons, and enjoyed great success with them, helping the team to the 1994 Champions League title and contributing to the 1995 campaign in which they ended as runners-up. Playing 251 games for Milan and scoring 30 goals, Boban won four Serie A titles, as well as three Italian Supercups. In August 2001, with his role at Milan diminished due to the signing of Rui Costa, he was loaned to La Liga side Celta Vigo where he played in only four league matches. Unhappy with his role as a substitute, he retired in October 2001 and finished his last season earlier than he intended.

In the 1999-2000 Milan A.C. celebrates its 100th Anniversary. To celebrate this important event Adidas made a special anniversary shirt inspired by the first Milan A.C. shirt with tiny stripes. This shirt was used very few times during several Serie A and Champions League games.

Shevchenko maintained his excellent form into the 2000–01 season, scoring 24 goals in 34 matches. Shevchenko also managed to score nine goals in 14 matches in the Champions League. Milan, however, failed to get past the second group stage.

Rossi held the record for the longest streak without conceding a goal in Serie A history. In an 11-match span, from 12 December 1993 to 27 February 1994, he kept a clean sheet for 929 consecutive minutes before being beaten by a long-range strike by U.S. Foggia’s Igor Kolyvanov; he surpassed the previous mark set by Dino Zoff in 1972–73 by 26 minutes, and his own record of longest consecutive minutes without conceding was surpassed by Gianluigi Buffon on 20 March 2016, by 45 minutes. Rossi also holds the record for the least goals conceded by a goalkeeper during a single 34-match Italian league season, with 11.

Pirlo Andrea

Did you Know?

2001-2002 was the first Andrea Pirlo’s season with Milan A.C. Pirlo made his Milan debut on 20 September 2001, in a 2–0 win over BATE Borisov in the UEFA Cup, after coming on for Massimo Donati. During his first season with the club, he helped the team to a fourth-place finish UEFA Champions League qualification spot, also reaching the semi-final of the UEFA Cup, the club’s best ever result in the competition. On 30 March 2002, he scored his first goal with Milan in a 3–1 home win over Parma, from a free-kick. At Milan, manager Carlo Ancelotti decided to shift Pirlo in front of the defence as a deep-lying playmaker, which allowed him more time on the ball to orchestrate his team’s attacks. Pirlo excelled in his new role, and soon developed into a world-class midfielder, playing a key role in Milan’s subsequent successes, as he won two UEFA Champions Leagues (2003 and 2007), two UEFA Super Cups (2003 and 2007), two Serie A titles (2004 and 2011), a FIFA Club World Cup (2007), a Supercoppa Italiana (2004), and a Coppa Italia (2003) with the club.

Abbiati Christian

Things to Know:

Abbiati, who had been with Milan since 1998, due to his performances, broke into the starting line-up, and in the final match of the season on 23 May, he made several decisive saves, including one on Cristian Bucchi, as Milan celebrated winning the Scudetto following a 2–1 away win over Perugia. He then became Milan’s undisputed first choice goalkeeper for the next four years, until he lost his starting spot to backup Dida early in the 2002–03 season after picking up an injury during a Champions League qualifying match in August 2002. Dida’s top form effectively grounded Abbiati’s playing time to a halt. Despite his relegation to the bench, Abbiati still managed to contribute to Milan’s Coppa Italia and Champions League victories that season.

Did you Know?

Milan won the 2002–03 Champions League with Maldini as their captain for the first time in his career, in the first all-Italian final, against Juventus, on 28 May 2003 at Old Trafford. Maldini helped Milan keep a clean sheet, as they defeated Juventus 3–2 on penalties after a 0–0 deadlock following extra time. On that day, it was exactly 40 years since his father, Cesare, had also lifted the European Cup trophy as Milan’s captain, also in England. He and his father are only one of three other father-son pairs to have also done so; the others being Manuel Sanchís Martínez and Manuel Sanchís Hontiyuelo of Real Madrid, and Carles and Sergio Busquets of Barcelona. Maldini was elected Man of the Match and was named in the UEFA Team of the Year for the first time in his career.

Did you Know?

The 2003 UEFA Champions League Final was a football match that took place at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on 28 May 2003 to decide the winner of the 2002–03 UEFA Champions League. The match was contested by two Italian teams: Juventus and Milan. The match made history as it was the first time two clubs from Italy had faced each other in the final. It was also the second intra-national final of the competition, following the all-Spanish 2000 UEFA Champions League Final three years earlier. Milan won the match via a penalty shoot-out after the game had finished 0–0 after extra time. Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United, was selected to host the match in December 2001, following a meeting of the UEFA Executive Committee in Nyon, Switzerland, at the same time as Estadio de La Cartuja in Seville was selected to host the 2003 UEFA Cup Final. It was selected ahead of the likes of the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid, the Stade de France in Saint-Denis near Paris, and the Amsterdam Arena.

Abbiati Christian

Things to Know:

Abbiati appeared in Milan’s 2003 Supercoppa Italiana defeat to Juventus on penalties, but Dida later regained his position as starting goalkeeper over Abbiati. On 25 August 2004, a brief controversy surfaced when an editorial criticizing Dida and Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti appeared on Abbiati’s official website, stating Dida had made mistakes in a friendly against Sampdoria and that Ancelotti was blocking a move that would have sent Abbiati to Palermo. Abbiati denied he had written the piece and said that it had been posted by his webmaster. “I never speak to the person who looks after my site. I would never judge one of my teammates.” Though his webmaster claimed responsibility for the article, speculation nonetheless arose it had actually been written by Abbiati due to his frustration at warming the substitutes’ bench as Milan went on to win the Serie A title that season with Dida as starting goalkeeper. Abbiati played all of 30 seconds in Milan’s 2004–05 Champions League campaign, when he came on as a substitute in the 74th minute after Dida had been struck by a flare thrown from the crowd during the quarter-final second leg against cross-city rivals Internazionale. The match was ultimately suspended less than a minute later. His last match in a Milan kit came on 20 May 2005 in a 3–3 home draw with Palermo, a match which saw the starters rested for the upcoming Champions League final, which Milan lost to Liverpool after squandering a 3–0 half-time lead. Milan finished second in Serie A that season.

Things to Know:

This game was the only with the “Coppa Italia” badge on chest left side very close to the team’s logo. Apparently the management didn’t like the position of this badge so for the rest of season the badge was used in the middle central chest.

Did you Know?

Kaká was a part of the five-man midfield in the 2004–05 season, usually playing in a withdrawn role behind striker Andriy Shevchenko. He was supported by Gennaro Gattuso and Clarence Seedorf defensively, as well as Massimo Ambrosini, allowing Kaká as the attacking midfielder and Rui Costa or Andrea Pirlo as the deep-lying playmaker to be in charge of creating Milan’s goalscoring chances, forming a formidable midfield unit in both Italy and Europe. Milan began the season by winning the Supercoppa Italiana against Lazio. He scored seven goals in 36 domestic appearances as Milan finished runner-up in the Scudetto race. Milan also reached the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia that season. Kaká played a pivotal role in Milan’s Champions League campaign that season, helping them to reach the final against Liverpool, scoring two goals and providing five assists. Dubbed the “Miracle of Istanbul,” Milan led 3–0 at half time, before Liverpool staged a comeback, scoring three goals in six minutes, and eventually won the match 3–2 on penalties. A match widely regarded as one of the greatest finals in the competition’s history, Kaká was imperious in the first half; he first won the early free-kick which led to Paolo Maldini’s opening goal, later beginning the play that led to Hernán Crespo’s first goal and Milan’s second of the night, before executing a long curling pass that split open the Liverpool defence and rolled perfectly into the path of Crespo to score Milan’s third. Kaká was once again nominated for the Ballon d’Or and FIFA World Player of the Year Awards, finishing ninth and eighth respectively, and he was named the 2005 UEFA Club Football Best Midfielder.

Nelson Dida hit by the burning flare during the Champions League game vs Internazionale

Things to Know:

In the 2004-2005 Champions League, Dida allowed only three goals in Milan’s first ten matches, including a string of five straight clean sheets following a 2–1 group-stage loss to Barcelona on 2 November 2004. The fifth of these came against crosstown rival Internazionale in the quarter-finals on 7 April 2005, in which Dida kept the Nerazzurri at bay with multiple saves, notably that of a top-corner Siniša Mihajlović free kick. With Milan leading 1–0 in the return leg on 12 April, Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso’s second-half header was disallowed by referee Markus Merk due to a foul on Dida by forward Julio Cruz. Inter ultras located in the curva behind Dida’s goal reacted to the call by hurling bottles and burning flares onto the pitch. As Dida attempted to resume gameplay by clearing out the debris from his penalty area to take a goal kick, a flare struck him on his right shoulder, missing his head by inches. The match was halted as firefighters worked to clear the pitch while Dida received treatment for bruising and first-degree burns to his shoulder. After a half-hour delay, the game resumed with Christian Abbiati in goal but was abandoned less than a minute later after more projectiles rained down. UEFA officially awarded Milan a 3–0 win, resulting in Dida tying a Champions League record, then shared with Edwin van der Sar and Józef Wandzik, with his sixth consecutive shutout. Inter were later fined €200,000 (₤132,000) by UEFA and ordered to play their next four European matches behind closed doors. In the semi-finals against PSV, Dida set a competition record with his seventh consecutive clean sheet in Milan’s 2–0 first-leg victory on 26 April, but his scoreless streak ended at 623 total minutes following a Park Ji-sung strike in the ninth minute of the second leg on 4 May as PSV won 3–1, but the Rossoneri advanced to the final on away goals. In the Final Dida allowed three goals in the (un)famous game against Liverpool when Milan A.C. was winning 3-0 after the first half and lost the game to the penalties after a 3-3 during the regular time.

Vieri Christian

Did you Know?

In July 2005 Vieri joined Milan A.C. Vieri and Inter came to a mutual agreement to terminate his contract with the club. He was then signed by cross-town rivals Milan, but left the Rossoneri – where he was not a regular starter – after just six months, joining French side Monaco in order to play regularly and gain a place in Italy’s squad for the 2006 World Cup. However, he suffered a serious knee injury while playing for Monaco in 2006, which required extensive surgery and ruled out the possibility of playing in his third consecutive FIFA World Cup.

Things to Know:

On 18 January 2007, it was reported that Ronaldo agreed terms with A.C. Milan for a transfer of €8.05 million. Ronaldo was forced to pay for the remaining period on his contract which tied him to Real Madrid, only because the latter did not agree to release him, while Milan were not ready to pay such a sum. On 25 January, Ronaldo flew from Madrid to Milan to watch the team play in a cup tie against Roma. Statements on the club’s website said that Ronaldo was in Milan for a medical, and that a meeting had been arranged for Monday with Real Madrid officials to discuss and finalize his transfer to the Milanese club. On 26 January, Ronaldo successfully completed his medical tests at the Milanello training complex under the supervision of club doctors, and the transfer completed on 30 January and got the squad number 99. He made his debut as a substitute on 11 February 2007, during the 2–1 victory over Livorno. The next game at Siena, on 17 February, Ronaldo scored twice and assisted on a third goal in his first start for Milan, as they won 4–3. In his first season, Ronaldo scored seven goals in 14 appearances. After his move to Milan, Ronaldo joined the list of the few players to have played for both Inter Milan and A.C. Milan in the Derby della Madonnina, and is one of two players to have scored for both sides in the derby game (for Inter in the 1998–99 season and for Milan in the 2006–07 season), the other player being Zlatan Ibrahimović. Ronaldo is also one of the few players to have started for Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, which also boasts a heated rivalry. Ronaldo, however, has never transferred directly between rival clubs. Ronaldo only played 300-plus minutes in his single season at Milan due to recurring injury problems and weight issues. Ronaldo’s only goals in the 2007–08 season, besides his goal against Lecce in pre-season, came in a 5–2 victory against Napoli at the San Siro, where he scored an emotional brace. It was also the first time Milan’s much hyped attacking trio of Kaká, Alexandre Pato and Ronaldo, known as Ka-Pa-Ro, played together. On 13 February 2008, Ronaldo suffered a severe season-ending knee injury while jumping for a cross in Milan 1–1 draw with Livorno, and was stretchered off and taken to a hospital. The club confirmed after the match that Ronaldo had ruptured the kneecap ligament in his left knee. It marked the third such occurrence of this injury, which he suffered twice to his right knee in 1999 and 2000. He was released by Milan at the end of the season, as his contract expired and was not renewed.

Beckham chose the number 32 shirt, previously worn by Christian Vieri, as both the number 7 and 23 shirts, numbers he wore at Manchester United and Real Madrid and Los Angeles Galaxy, were already used by Alexandre Pato and club vice captain Massimo Ambrosini, respectively. In the game against Chievo Beckham suffered a torn left Achilles tendon, causing him to miss the World Cup as well as the MLS season due to the injury, which took him out of action for the next five months. Doctor Sakari Orava performed surgery on Beckham’s tendon in Turku, Finland, on 15 March 2010. After the operation, Orava affirmed that, “it went quite fine. The prognosis is he needs a rehabilitation for the next few months, and the plaster cast is the next six to eight weeks. I would say that [it will be] maybe four months before he’s running, but six months before he’s jumping and kicking.”

I have moved here to win the Champions League with Milan. I want to win the double.”Ibrahimović made his Milan debut in a 2–0 loss to Cesena on 11 September, in which he missed a penalty late in the match, and scored his first goals for the club when Milan defeated Auxerre in their first Champions League match of the season on 15 September.

Donnarumma Gianluigi

Did you Know?

On 15 June 2017 it was initially announced that Donnarumma would not be renewing his contract with Milan,however on 11 July, after much speculation, he renewed with Milan until 2021. Donnarumma played his first European game in a 1–0 win against CS U Craiova in the first leg of Milan’s Europa League qualification match on 27 July 2017, in which he managed to keep a clean sheet. On 30 December 2017, Donnarumma played his 100th game for Milan in a 1–1 draw against Fiorentina, becoming the youngest player to make 100 appearances with Milan’s jeresy.

Things to Know:

This shirt was given by Donnarumma to a Milan’s fan after the game against Crotone, whom we got the shirt from. The curious thing was that the fan who got the shirt by the the player was heavily protesting against him because of the player’s agent who was pushing the player to leave A.C. Milan , but Donnarumma took his shirt off and friendly put it in the fan’s hands. Few days before the game against Crotone Gianluigi Donnarumma has hit back at supporters after they produced a scathing banner that told the 18-year-old: “Ora Vattene. La Pazienza è finita.” – ‘It’s time to leave.’ Donnarumma was reduced to tears in the Milan dressing room after supporters unveiled the brutal message in Milan’s comfortable 3-0 Coppa Italia victory over Verona only few days before.
