A lot of players have crossed the divide in Milan, playing for both AC Milan and Inter. The two Milanese giants meet again this weekend in Serie A‘s first Derby della Madonnina of the season, with kick off set for 20:45 CET.
Hakan Calhanoglu is the most recent player to make the move from one to the other, having left Milan on a free transfer over the summer to join Inter, but he’s by no means the only player to have done so.
Bbig names like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Clarence Seedorf, Patrick Vieira, and countless others have also worn both shirts, but only one man has managed to conquer Italy and Europe while wearing each club’s colours.
As highlighted by Tuttomercatoweb, Saul Malatrasi remains the only player to have won both the European Cup and the Scudetto for both AC Milan and Inter.
The 83-year-old first won two Coppa Italia trophies with Fiorentina and Roma respectively, as well as the European Cup Winners’ Cup with La Viola, before moving to Inter.
There, he won the Scudetto in 1964/65 and 1965/66, the European Cup in 1964/65, and the Intercontinental Cup in 1064 and again in 1965.
Malatrasi then left Inter for Lecco, before returning to the city to represent the Rossoneri. With Milan, he won the Scudetto in 1967/68, also winning the European Cup Winners’ Cup that same season. The following year he won the European Cup, and also claimed the Intercontinental Cup again in 1969.
