An Andrea Pirlo is born once in a blue moon (or once in an Inter Champions League win - roughly every half century). After a ten year spell with the Rossoneri, Pirlo has parted ways with Milan, leaving behind a legacy and slew of trophies that will be nearly impossible to replicate.

The laundry list of trophies Pirlo has been a pivotal part of will be listed below. It is indeed a staggering list. In a few decades from now, you will be telling your children, or grandchildren: I was lucky enough to watch Andrea Pirlo for a decade.

Over this past weekend, the Rossoneri were able to snatch up Scudetto #18 following a 0-0 draw against Roma. While the party after the final whistle showcased some of the finest moments in the history of unintentional comedy, the squad proved to have the necessary firepower to dominate Serie A this season.

If we're referring to trophies as silverware, then Berlusconi just won a spoon. The Coppa Italia could be viewed as a napkin while the Champions League is the entire plate. The Milan Owner has made it very clear that Milan will replicate their domestic form in Europe next year. Some pieces are needed if this dream would come to fruition.

Matteo Bonetti Born and raised just a few kilometers away from The San Siro, Matteo Bonetti has been watching the Rossoneri ever since childhood. The passion was instilled by a family whose fanaticism for the team dates back to the early 1900's. Instead of bursting with an obscenity laden tirade, or turning any object around him into a projectile weapon after a disappointing Milan outing, Matteo can now channel his emotions into a more effective, and most importantly: safe, manner - writing on a global platform. He is a young journalist whose grandfather was the Vice President of Milan nearly four decades ago. E-mail him:, and follow him on twitter: @TheMilanGuy
