Did you Know?

The 2007 UEFA Champions League Final was the final match of the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League, Europe’s primary club football competition. The showpiece event was contested between Liverpool of England and A.C. Milan of Italy at the Olympic Stadium in Athens, Greece, on 23 May 2007. Liverpool, who had won the competition five times, were appearing in their seventh final. Milan, who had won the competition six times, were appearing in their eleventh final. Both teams had to pass through five rounds before they reached the final. They both entered in the third qualifying round and won their respective groups before they reached the knockout stage, where matches were contested over two legs, with a match at each team’s home ground. Milan’s victories varied from close affairs to comfortable victories. They defeated Celtic by a single goal over two legs, while they beat Manchester United 5–3 on aggregate in the semi-final. Liverpool’s matches were mainly all close affairs; they beat defending champions Barcelona on the away goals rule in the first knockout round and beat Chelsea in a penalty shootout in the semi-finals, although they did record a 4–0 aggregate win over PSV in the quarter-finals. Before the match there were ticketing problems because many fans gained entry to the stadium without valid tickets. After the match, a UEFA spokesman accused Liverpool of having the worst fans in Europe, a claim later denied by UEFA president Michel Platini. Watched by a crowd of 63,000, Milan took the lead when Andrea Pirlo’s free-kick deflected off Filippo Inzaghi in the first half. Milan extended their lead in the second half when Inzaghi scored a second goal. Liverpool scored a late goal through Dirk Kuyt, but were unable to equalise before the end of the match. Milan won the match 2–1 to win their seventh Champions League.

Ronaldo Nazario

Did you Know?

Since the second half of this season the team’s shirts started having the “IL CLUB PIU’ TITOLATO AL MONDO” (The Most Awarded Team in the World) embroidered on chest.

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.

The 2007 UEFA Super Cup was the 32nd UEFA Super Cup, an annual football match between the winners of the previous season’s UEFA Champions League and UEFA Cup competitions. The match was held at the Stade Louis II in Monaco on 31 August 2007 and contested by Milan, who won the 2006–07 UEFA Champions League, and Sevilla, winners of the 2006–07 UEFA Cup. Sevilla were looking to become only the second team to defend the trophy in its history, the first being their opponents Milan, who had previously won the trophy four times. This was Milan’s seventh appearance in the Super Cup, putting them one ahead of the previous season’s runners-up, Barcelona. Milan won the match 3-1, with goals from Filippo Inzaghi, Marek Jankulovski and the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year, Kaká. All three of Milan’s goals came in the second half after Renato had put Sevilla 1–0 up after only 14 minutes. This was Milan’s fifth Super Cup title, a new record.

Sevilla had an opportunity to open the scoring early on, when Renato pounced on Massimo Oddo’s fluffed clearance, but he sent his shot wide. Two minutes later, Milan had a chance to score after Filippo Inzaghi’s shot was deflected onto the post by Kaká. Sevilla went 1–0 up on 14 minutes when Renato headed in from Duda’s corner. The Sevilla players celebrated the goal by pointing towards the sky. Sevilla almost scored a second goal on 25 minutes, after Gennaro Gattuso’s attempt to intercept a Sevilla counter only resulted in him sliding the ball to Frédéric Kanouté, who rounded Dida but played his pass behind Renato. The Brazilian was able to get the ball under control and get a shot off, but saw his shot blocked by Alessandro Nesta. However, Inzaghi tied the score after the break after scoring a free header from Gennaro Gattuso’s cross from the right side. Marek Jankulovski found the winner soon afterwards through a lovely left-footed volley to hit a low diagonal shot to the keeper’s left. Kaká capped off the fine overall display when he headed home the rebound after his initial shot from a penalty was saved.

The 2007 FIFA Club World Cup (officially the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2007 presented by Toyota for sponsorship reasons) was a football tournament played in Japan from 7 to 16 December 2007. It was the fourth FIFA Club World Cup, a tournament organized by FIFA for the winners of each confederation’s top continental club tournament. Seven teams from the six confederations entered the tournament with Italian side A.C. Milan defeating Boca Juniors from Argentina 4-2 in the final to become the most successful team in the world in terms of international trophies won (18) and the first European team to win the Club World Cup. The qualified teams were decided during 2007 through the six major continental competitions. The winner of each regional club championship participated in the 2007 Club World Cup. In March 2007, the FIFA executive committee introduced a qualifying playoff between the 2007 OFC Champions League champion and the host nation’s 2007 J. League champion, as opposed to previous years, in which the Oceania champions were given direct entry into the tournament. In order to avoid the participation of two teams from the same country, the best-placed non-Japanese team in the AFC Champions League would take the “host” berth if a Japanese team won that competition, which indeed happened as Urawa Red Diamonds won the 2007 AFC Champions League. Also, the fifth-place match was eliminated for this edition.

Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Andrij Shevchenko in the first half of the game A.C.Milan vs Catania which took place in Milan,”Giuseppe Meazza” Stadium, on December 7th 2008. Milan defeated Catania 1-0 and the shirt was swapped by Shevchenko with a Catania’s player who we got the shirt from. Shevchenko was not used very often in the starting lineup at Chelsea, and with the appointment of Luiz Felipe Scolari, he was deemed surplus to requirements. Due to this, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani offered to take Shevchenko back to the San Siro and Shevchenko was loaned back to his old club for the 2008–09 season. Shevchenko’s second spell was considered unsuccessful, as he failed to score any league goals and only scored 2 goals in 26 appearances, starting only nine of those games. At the end of the season, Milan confirmed that Shevchenko would be returning to Chelsea for the final year of his four-year contract. At the end of that season, it was also announced that Milan’s manager, Carlo Ancelotti, would also be leaving to join Chelsea. Shevchenko was not even on the bench for Chelsea’s penalty shoot-out victory over Manchester United at Wembley at the weekend in the season-opening Community Shield. After making a late appearance for Chelsea in their second game of the 2009–10 season, Ancelotti announced that Shevchenko would be likely to leave Chelsea before the summer transfer window closed. Despite this, Ancelotti said it had nothing to do with his decision to leave Shevchenko out of Chelsea’s 2009–10 Champions League squad, but just to continue playing first-team football.

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.”

Match Issued Shirt


Montolivo Riccardo


Did you Know?

This shirt was prepared for Riccardo Montolivo for the Serie A game between A.C.Milan and Crotone which took place in Milan, “Giuseppe Meazza” Stadium, on December 4th 2016. Milan defeated Crotone 2-1. Montolivo didn’t play the game and he wasn’t even a substitute for the match but the shirt was prepared for him as you can see above from official team Twitter’s account. The game against Crotone was the first game that Milan played after the Brazilian team Chapecoense’s tragedy when its flight on its way to Medellin (Colombia) crashed on the floor on November 26th 2016. The aircraft was transporting the team and their entourage from Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, to Medellín, where the team was scheduled to play at the 2016 Copa Sudamericana Finals. One of the four crew members, three of the players, and two other passengers survived with injuries. The official report from Colombia’s civil aviation agency, Aerocivil, found the causes of the crash to be fuel exhaustion, due to an inappropriate flight plan by the airline, pilot error regarding poor decision making as the situation worsened, including a failure to declare an emergency after fuel levels became critically low, thus failing to inform air traffic control at Medellin that a priority landing was required. So during the game against Crotone, A.C.Milan wore a special shirt with “FORĆA CHAPE” printed under the player’s numbers and an extra Chapecoense’s badge on sleeve. All the shirts used by A.C.Milan’s players went then to the Chapecoense’s team.

Things to Know:

In May 2012, Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri announced Montolivo would join the club on a free transfer when his contract with Fiorentina expired on 30 June. Montolivo then signed a four-year contract with the club. “Next season, Montolivo will arrive and he is a very talented player with great technique,” said Allegri to Milan Channel. He chose to wear the number 18 jersey which he had worn before and which was last worn by Alberto Aquilani in Milan. In the Milan derby though he was highly praised for his performance, the referee disallowed a stunning 30-yard volley by Montolivo due to a challenge committed by Urby Emanuelson. On 30 October, Montolivo scored his first goal for Milan, coming in the 69th minute after Milan were down 2–0 to Palermo. Milan eventually drew the match 2–2, salvaging a point. On 25 November, in a 1–0 win against Juventus, Montolivo played his first match as Milan’s captain as Daniele Bonera and Massimo Ambrosini were suspended while Christian Abbiati was out injured. He ended the first season at the club by becoming one of the two (the other being Stephan El Shaarawy) most-used players of the season. On 11 June 2013, Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani stated Montolivo would be the next captain for Milan after previously announcing that current club captain Massimo Ambrosini would not be extending his contract with the Rossoneri. After earning the captaincy, Montolivo opened his account by scoring against Catania. He then scored in a 4–3 defeat to Sassulo. On 13 April 2014, he scored an astonishing long-range strike in the 23rd minute against Catania, which extended Milan’s winning streak to four matches. After breaking his leg in a pre-2014 World Cup friendly match against the Republic of Ireland on 31 May, Montolivo was ruled out for six months. On 30 November, he made his return in a 2–0 home win over Udinese, coming on as a substitute in the 88th minute. Following the Chinese takeover of the club, in the summer of 2017, Montolivo was stripped of his captaincy against his wishes in favor of Leonardo Bonucci, who had just been signed at the time. Complying with the club management board’s decision, Montolivo still made 26 appearances in all competitions during the 2017–18 season, including the one in the Coppa Italia final on 9 May 2018, which subsequently became his last as a professional. Ahead of the 2018–19 season, head coach Gennaro Gattuso excluded Montolivo from the senior squad for “technical reasons”. However, following a long-term injury to Lucas Biglia, Montolivo returned to the squad in November. Nonetheless, despite making 22 appearances on the team’s substitutions bench, he was never fielded in what would become his final season as a player. He left the club upon the expiration of his contract on 30 June 2019. On 13 November 2019, Montolivo announced his retirement from football.

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.

 120th Anniversary


Match Worn Shirt


Calabria Davide


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Davide Calabria during the Serie A game between A.C.Milan and Sassuolo which took place in Milan, “Giuseppe Meazza” Stadium, on December 15th 2019. Milan draw 0-0. Calabria was a substitute player and he didn’t get in to the pitch. This game represented also the Milan 120th anniversary’s game since the club was founded on December 13th 1899 by Englishmen Alfred Edwards and Herbert Kilpin. To celebrate this event the team’s supplier Puma Puma and AC Milan this morning launched the limited-edition 120th anniversary kit that was used by the team only in the game against Sassuolo. The Milan 120 Years jersey is based on the same template and features a very similar design as the regular 19-20 home shirt, but all logos have been recolored in gold. A subtle, monochrome version of the club badge is used for the Milan 2019-20 120th anniversary football shirt, with ‘120’ written below it. The famous words of Herbert Kilpin (“We will be a team of devils. Our colours will be red like fire and black like the fear we will invoke in our opponents.”) are printed inside the stripes on the bottom left of the Puma AC Milan 120 Years shirt.

Things to Know:

Calabria has been with A.C. Milan since 2006, playing for the club’s youth teams of different age groups up until Primavera (U-19). He received his first ever call-up to the senior team ahead of the away game against S.S. Lazio played on 25 January 2015; he, however, remained an unused substitute. He made his Serie A debut on 30 May 2015 against Atalanta, replacing Mattia De Sciglio at the 84th minute in a 1–3 away win. On 15 July 2015 Calabria was officially promoted to the first team. He made his first start in a 3–2 win over Palermo on 22 September, playing 49 minutes, and was highly praised for his performance. Ahead of the 2017–18 season, Milan acquired Atalanta’s Andrea Conti for nearly €25 million, viewing the player as the most likely starter on the right side of the team’s defensive line; Calabria had been persuaded yet refused to join one of the lower-ranking Serie A teams on loan to increase his playing time. In September 2017, Conti injured his anterior cruciate ligament for the first time, and in March 2018 suffered a recurrence of the injury, effectively ending his season. The club ruled out the possibility of any further emergency signings, thus trusting Calabria as a long-term replacement for Conti in the right full-back position. He completed the season with 30 appearances in all competitions and scored his debut goal in senior professional football on 25 February 2018 in the Serie A 2–0 away win against Roma.

Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Gianluigi Donnarumma during the Serie A game between Lazio and Milan which took place in Roma, “Stadio Olimpico”, on July 4th 2020. Milan defeated Lazio 3-0 and at the end of the game Donnarumma gifted the Lazio goalkeeper’s coach with his shirt who later auctioned it for charity. During the 2019–20 season, Donnarumma maintained his place in the starting line-up. On 21 July 2020, he played his 200th game for the club in a 2–1 away win over Sassuolo in Serie A, during which he wore the captain’s armband for the first time in his career, after Alessio Romagnoli was subbed off due to injury.
