3. Paolo Maldini

Football News

In third place we find arguably AC Milan's and Italy's best ever defender. The one-club-man played for the Italian giants for a stunning 24 seasons between 1985 and 2009 and no one comes close to his experience of playing in Champions League finals.

Maldini made 140 appearances in the competition and has appeared in the final an unbelievable six times. He won the competition in 1994, 2003 and 2007 against Barcelona, Juventus and Liverpool respectively.

In 1993, 1995 and 2005 Maldini was on the losing side when Milan lost against Marseille (93), Ajax (95) and Liverpool (05). It is worth mentioning that Maldini has won the European Cup twice as well, in 1989 and 1990.
