One of the football clubs that has etched its name in history is Milan and over the years there have been some legendary players in it. Without further ado, here are some of the best players for the Rossoneri…

Gianni Rivera

The thing about Rivera is that he stuck to Milan for 19 years and played just one season for his hometown club Alessandria. He was among the first among the Milan legends that was loyal to the club and he was a rare find.

There had been many records set and broken by players, but he cemented his legacy with 658 games played. In 1969 he was elected the European Player of the Year (the Ballon d’Or) and helped Milan win its second European Cup in the same year. He was known for his performance on the pitch which is why he deserves a spot on the list.


The Brazilian is one of the many talented football players from Brazil that have graced the football field. Kaka came in relatively cheap and as an unknown , but during his career in Milan, he helped make the club priceless.

The 2006-07 season was the one that made him stand out as a player. This was the season when he scored 10 times for Milan and passed the ball to Inzaghi who shot the winning goal against Liverpool in the Champions League.

Unfortunately, Kaka left Milan to help it recover from its financial crisis, joining Real Madrid. He returned though and was flooded with affection with Milanisti.

Franco Baresi

Franco is one of the few Milan players that played for the club when it was part of Serie B. All that changed when Berlusconi took over and made Milan a force to be reckoned with.

He is known as being one of the natural sweepers. In the last 15 years of his career, he led Milan as a captain. In addition to this, he was known for his defensive capabilities which makes him another Milan football legend.


These are only three of the many greats of Milan. There are a lot of others that deserve a spot on a longer list of the greatest players of this club, but they’re forever present in the annals of history.

Milan remain one of the greatest football clubs of all time and will bring even more future icons into its fold that will bless the pitch with their performance, but what stands out about the three above is how they were part of three separate but iconic eras.
