Maldini, meanwhile, played in five Champions League finals as well – in 1992/93, 1993/94, 1994/95, 2002/03, 2004/05 and 2006/07 – winning three of those.

Overall, the Italian legend has taken part in eight major European finals, but two of those (in 1988/89 and 1989/90, which Milan both won) were during the old format of the Champions League, known as European Champions Cup.
