Cristiano and Messi are the Kings of the UEFA Champions League today, trying to break every single record. But there are a couple of UNBROKEN records that might probably last forever. Seeing individual player to win Europe’s elite prize with two separate teams is near impossible. Well, here are the ONLY four players to win the Champions League in consecutive years with two different teams.
4. Marcel Desailly (Marseille – 1993 & AC Milan – 1994)

Former French Centre-Back and had an amazing 20-years long career. Back in 1992, Desailly had built a very strong partnership in the middle of the park with Didier Deschamps, current French national manager. They guided Marseille to their first and only Champions League victory over AC Milan in the 1992-1993 final.

The following year, Desailly moved to Italy, joining losing finalists AC Milan. Joining forces of Desailly with the likes of Albertini, Maldini, and Panucci, Milan became successful. Desailly created history with Milan, as the Italian giants went on to beat Johan Cruyff’s Barcelona’s 4-0 in the final of 1993-1994.
3. Paulo Sousa (Juventus – 1996 & Borussia Dortmund – 1997)
Portuguese defensive midfielder, Paulo Sousa, joined Italian giants Juventus in 1994. Two years later, Sousa and Juventus won the club’s first ever Champions League trophy beating defending champions Ajax on penalties in 1996.
