Raised in the parish youth club of Travagliato, in the Brescia plains, Franco Baresi joined AC Milan’s first team as a very young boy during the 1977/78 season. A year later, at the age of eighteen, he won his first league title, putting the star on the jersey for 10 league wins. Loyal to the jersey in the difficult years, he was captain of the team that under the guidance of both Sacchi and Capello conquered the world from the late 80’s on. He finished his football career counting 719 official matches, 6 league titles, 3 European Champion Clubs’ Cups, 2 Intercontinental Cups and 3 European Cup Winners’ Cups. AC Milan retired the number 6 jersey in his honour.
