Top 10 Best AC Milan Players

Who are the best AC Milan players, you ask? Well, there are as many answers as there are fans. With over a century's worth of players to choose from, it's a pretty tough question.

Are you a fan of the classic defensive stalwarts, like Franco Baresi or Paolo Maldini, who stood like unyielding pillars at the back? Or do you lean more towards the creative geniuses like Andrea Pirlo, whose pinpoint passes could unlock even the most stubborn of defenses? Maybe you're captivated by the strikers, the ones who lit up the pitch with their goal-scoring prowess, like Andriy Shevchenko or Marco van Basten.

AC Milan has been home to many footballing giants, including international icons like Ronaldinho, Kaka, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Each brought their own flair, talent, and unforgettable moments to the team. And then, of course, there are those who started their career at the club and went on to become global stars.

With so many players making significant contributions to the club, the process of ranking them might seem like an impossible task. But that's the beauty of football. It's about opinions, discussions, and sharing the passion for your favorite team.

As you make your picks, think about each player's impact on the team, their individual brilliance, and their dedication to the Rossoneri shirt. Keep in mind the context of their era, their role in trophy-laden seasons, and their iconic performances in defining matches.
The Top Ten
1 Kaka Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, commonly known as Kaká or Ricardo Kaká, is a retired Brazilian professional footballer who played as an attacking midfielder for Orlando City SC in Major League Soccer and the Brazil national team .

Kaka is a legend. If people love midfielders as much as forwards then they won't give any substitution for Kaka. Ronaldo and Messi like players are good players but many times with the help of midfielders. In case of Kaka he need to score, pass-through balls, pin point pass etc, and many times need to defend also.

Kaka is one of the best players in football history, and he is a legend, and when ac milan sold him to real Madrid it was a big mistake!

The best footballer I've ever seen, in the same mold as Messi and Ronaldo dangerous and skillful even now he's still a threat.

Kaka is the best player of AC Milan history and won many titles for him. Kaka is most complete midfielder than ever.

2 Maldini

Maldini is the Icon of AC Milan. 25 seasons. 5 Champions league titles ( 2 as Captain ), 7 Serie A titles, Record for the most appearances in Serie A, being in the Uefa team of the Year at the age of 38, Captaining Milan for Almost 12 years, 3rd Place on Ballon d'or for two times and Wildely being Regarded as the best Defender of all time...
if this doesn't make him the best player of Milan ( and one of the best players of all time ) then I don't know what does.

This is hard to say as Kaka is my favorite player of all time, but Maldini was a leader for the Rossoneri for years. The Maldini name itself has been in the club for years and when Paola Maldini left he left a hole in the leadership of the team.

He was amazing at tackling. Put is main roll that helped the team was his leadership, without his leadership and guidence ac milan would have never become the team that they were.
All hail the king Maldini!

Maldini has given so much to this club over his career, he has given to Milan more than any other player.

3 Pato

Pato is an excellent player having a great skill and goal scoring ability and Very younger and active player...

Young Active Fast Loyal. The Duck is here to smash up the place man.

4 Andrea Pirlo

The most important player for AC Milan while he were there.
My favorite player AC Milan player ever. His precision with the ball is amazing, and is the mastermind behind Milan's recent success.

Pirlo is the best at free kicks.

5 Inzaghi

What a target man he was!

6 Andriy Shevchenko Andriy Mykolayovych Shevchenko is a Ukrainian retired footballer who played for Dynamo Kyiv, Milan, Chelsea, as well as the Ukrainian national team as a striker.

Absolute legend, one of the most prolific goal scorers and well rounded players in the history of the club. A joke that players like Gilardino are above him on here.

What in gods name are people voting for the likes of Pato? Sheva was the greatest striker to play for us even ibra couldn't compare to what Sheba done.

Andriy Shevchenko is the best player in the AC Milan's history! AC Milan made mistake when it sold it to FC Chelsea!

Kids these days don't know this Legend.

7 Clarence Seedorf

It pains me not to put Maldini but the only player in the world to win four European cups with 3 separate teams? I have to say Seedorf.

Not high-rate in the clockwork orange national team. But a very stable and beautiful player to sea in Milan.

8 Alessandro Nesta

He has been my childhood hero, along with Maldini. I love Maldini, but I think Nesta is too much underrated!

9 Marco van Basten Marcel "Marco" van Basten is a Dutch football manager and former football player, who played for Ajax and Milan, as well as the Netherlands national team, in the 1980s and early '90s as a forward.

Best attacker ever

Prolific goal scorer unfortunately his career was cut short

10 Zlatan Ibrahimovic Zlatan Ibrahimović (3 October 1981) is a Swedish professional footballer who plays for an Italian club AC Milan and the Sweden national team for which he is captain.

Extremely important for the team. He can change the picture of the game on his own, fantastic assist-player, strong striker.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is very powerful player.

He is one of the best players in the world and he can make a great teamate with kevin prince boeteng and el shaarawy.

The Contenders
11 Rino Gatusso
12 Gilardino
13 Ronaldinho Ronaldo de Assis Moreira (born 21 March 1980), commonly known as Ronaldinho Gaúcho or simply Ronaldinho, is a Brazilian former professional footballer and current ambassador for Barcelona. He played mostly as an attacking midfielder, but was also deployed as a winger. Often considered one of the best players of his generation and regarded by many as one of the greatest of all time, Ronaldinho won two FIFA World Player of the Year awards and a Ballon d'Or. A global icon of the sport, he was renowned for his technical skills, creativity and dribbling ability, as well as his use of tricks, feints, overhead kicks, no-look passes and accuracy from free-kicks.

I think Ronaldinho AKA: don't mess with me. Should be the best because that dude is a LEGEND, helping messi in his first goal, he is outstanding. The effort he does to make the team's he's played for good. Barcelona, Milan, ETC. He, in my opinion is the best of all time. He is also my idol

He is doing great job!

The only player to ever win the African, European and World Footballer of the Year all in a single year (1995) must be a great talent. He had dazzling skills, he score magnificent goals, and he was a great talent. Weah is one of the best ever talents to ever wear the AC Milan jersey!
