AC Milan loss to Liverpool in the final of the Champions League of 2005 was bitter. After leading 3:0 at half time the team lost the title in a penalties shoot out. Two years later Milan got a chance to redeem its honor. The tournament of the 2006-2007 season ended in a final that brought these same two clubs together for a match. AC Milan beat Liverpool 2:1, taking the revenge. This was the 7th and last win so far of the European Cup (The Champions League) by Milan. An achievement that is only second to Real Madrid's 10 wins of this cup.
AC Milan is one of the biggest clubs in Italian and international club football. The club has won 18 Serie A titles, the first of which came in 1901 and the last so far in 2011. They won additional 5 Italian cups, 6 Italian Super Cups, the UEFA Super Cup 5 times, The Cup Winners Cup twice, the Intercontinental Cup 3 times and the title that replaced it, the FIFA Club World Cup, once, and as mentioned 7 times the European Cup.
AC Milan was founded in 1899 by two Englishmen. As a tribute, the English flag is presented in the club's crest.
Ever since the 1980s the Club has been owned by former Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi. It is currently managed by former player, Fillipo Inzaghi who replaced Massimiliano Allegri.
Top class managers such as Giovanni Trapattoni, Arigo Sacchi, Fabio Capello and Carlo Ancelotti trained the club in different periods. Trapattoni, a former player at the club that later became a legendary coach in Italian football started his training career at the club in the mid 1970s. Sacchi led the club to two consecutive wins of the European Cup in the late 1980s (an achievement that has not been matched by any other club so far). Capello, another former player for the club, trained it in the 1990s and led the team to 3 consecutive national championships and two back to back appearances in the Champions League final, beating on the second one, the Dream Team of Barcelona 4:0. That squad is considered by many as the best squad that AC Milan has ever had. Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid's current manager, won the last two Champions League titles for the club in 2003 and 2007.
Top talents of the history of football have played for the club. In modern times the internationals: Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten, Frank Rijkaard, Zvonimir Boban, Dejan Savićević, Marcel Desailly, George Weah, Andriy Shevchenko, Dida, Clarence Seedorf, Cafu, Kaká and Robinho could be mentioned in addition to national stars such as Mauro Tassotti, Franco Baresi, Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Costacurta, Roberto Donadoni, Marco Simone, Alessandro Nesta, Massimo Ambrosini, Christian Panucci, Andrea Pirlo and Filippo Inzaghi
After winning its last Serie A title in 2011, last seasons were pretty unstable for Milan. Managers and players have changed and the club has not gained any titles. More than that, it didn't classify for any of the two European tournaments. With Inzaghi as its manager and with players such as Honda, El Shaarawy, Montolivo, Essien, Alex and goal keepers Abbiati and Lopez AC Milan will try to reach its natural position at the top of the Serie A and European football .
Paolo Maldini holds the record of appearances for Milan, with 902 official games played in total and 647 in Serie A between 1985 and 2009 (also a Serie A record). The club has retired his Jersey number (3) together with Franco Baresi's number (6). Swedish, Gonnar Nordahl who played for the club in the 1950s holds the scoring record for the club with 221 goals in 268 games, his record of 35 goals in a Serie A season from 1949-1950 has not been beaten yet. Second on the list is Andriy Shevchenko with 175 goals in 322 games.
Milan plays at the biggest stadium in Italy, the San Siro, which can seat about 80,000 spectators and hosts also the home games of Milan's biggest rival; Inter Milano. The Derby game between the clubs is called Derby della Madonnina and is one of the hottest Derbies in the world of football.
