5. Diego and Gabriel Milito

This pair of brothers have both won a historic treble in 2010 and 2009 respectively, although one was a key player in the campaign while the other spent the season in the treatment room.

Diego Milito, who currently plays for Inter Milan, played most of his career for the likes of Genoa, Zaragoza and Racing in Argentina. Sufficient to say he has not been in the limelight for as long as his younger brother, but was in fantastic form despite his old age before a knee injury that ruled him out for the long term.

Meanwhile, Gabi Milito has been forced to retire due to a series of horrifying injuries, having played his last full season with Barcelona in 2007/2008. That year, he made 42 appearances in all competitions. Nonetheless, both brothers have won a combined total of 11 major trophies and deserve their place in this list.
