Click through the gallery to see some of the best players who have never lifted the UCL.

The 39-year-old could have become the oldest player to lift the Champions League this past weekend, but instead lost his third final.

"I still have one more year on my contract, so that means I have one more chance of winning the Champions League," Buffon told Sky Italia.

"Admittedly, it'll be tough to do better than this year, because we could've done something truly incredible this season. Unfortunately, we didn't manage it."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is another superstar who has never won a Champions League winner's medal, despite collecting 33 titles during his illustrious career so far.

Even George Weah, Africa's only FIFA World Player of the Year and Ballon d'Or winner, never managed to raise the prestigious trophy.
