SHORT BIOGRAPHY
Alessandro Nesta (born 19 March 1976) is considered one of the best Italian defenders in history. Nesta joined his local side Lazio at the age of 9 and eventually made his first team debut in 1994.

After establishing himself as one of the best defenders in the country, financial troubles meant Lazio had to sell Nesta for just over €30m to AC Milan. Nesta was named Italian defender of the year from 2000 to 2004, and despite suffering injury at the tournament, he was a World Cup winner in 2006 with Italy.

2006
An injury-hit season didn’t prevent Alessandro Nesta from making a telling contribution in AC Milan’s Champions League 2006-07 triumph, returning in time to help secure passage through the later rounds.

Still smarting after a remarkable comeback defeat at the hands of Liverpool two years earlier, Milan earned the opportunity to avenge that loss in the final. Nesta’s assured performance helped his team to a 2-1 victory over Liverpool, and he lifted the trophy for the second time.

Alessandro Nesta graduated through Lazio’s youth ranks to become captain of the club in his early twenties.

The defender picked up his first silverware after scoring the winner in the 1998 Coppa Italia final, one of only 13 career goals. The following year, Lazio won their only continental competitions so far, as Nesta lifted the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup and European Super Cup. The 1999-2000 season marked the pinnacle of his time in Rome, as he led his club to a historic league and cup double.

2003
Renowned by many as the best centre-half in the world, AC Milan signed Alessandro Nesta for just over €30 million and immediately reaped the rewards. His debut season climaxed with the first ever all-Italian Champions League final.

The Milan defence held off Juventus for 120 minutes, and Nesta’s converted penalty in the shootout helped Milan lift the trophy. Domestically, the Italian international’s performances won him the accolade of Serie A defender of the year for the fourth season in a row.
