Watch: Nesta, Pirlo, Kaka – Shevchenko picks best Milan XI

By Oliver Fisher -

Andriy Shevchenko was given the very difficult task of picking an XI of players from those that he played with during his time at AC Milan.

Shevchenko scored 175 goals for Milan, making him the second-most prolific player in the history of the club, and is also the all-time top scorer of the Derby della Madonnina with 14 goals in the fixture.

He won virtually every trophy available with the Rossoneri including Serie A, the Coppa Italia, Supercoppa Italiana, the UEFA Super Cup and the Champions League twice.

La Gazzetta dello Sport asked him to pick between some of those he shared his time with to build a team in Carlo Ancelotti’s 4-3-2-1 ‘Christmas tree’ formation.

  1. Crespo – what a striker. I can’t remember why he didn’t stay longer but he should’ve done. Or joined earlier.

    1. He was on loan from Chelsea wasn’t he and we took the Gilardino option…Crespo was clutch that season, scored the goals against Man Utd in the CL and was great in the final

        1. Yeah, Gila had a good season for Parma but was still a bit unproven at the highest level.

          Watching the final In Istanbul I felt we should have taken Sheva off just after half time when Liverpool were pushing back and brought Rui on to pack out that midfield as Liverpool had done, leave Crespo up top to create havoc……hindsight

  2. He knew which midfield brought him the most goals😁….that Pirlo Gattuso Seedorf combo was one of the most brilliant midfield combos in the history of the game 🥲
