Clarence Seedorf Champions League Challenge

Credit to @PriZe for creating this challenge.

Did you know that Seedorf is the only player to have won the trophy with three different clubs. 

1994/95: Ajax
Still Ajax's youngest ever player in the Eredivisie, Seedorf broke into the side as a 16-year-old in October 1992 and became a crucial member of the golden generation. Guided by veterans Danny Blind and Frank Rijkaard, this was a youthful outfit featuring future stars such as the De Boer twins, Edgar Davids, Jari Litmanen and Patrick Kluivert. It reached its peak in the 1994/95 UEFA Champions League.

Two 2-0 group-stage victories against Milan boded well and Louis van Gaal's charges repeated the trick in the final, defeating the Rossoneri 1-0 courtesy of substitute Kluivert's late strike. "Everyone dreams of winning a European Cup final and I was lucky to do it at just 19," said Seedorf. "As soon as I woke up [the day after the final] I felt different, strange, somehow special."

1997/98: Real Madrid
Seedorf left Ajax after that glorious night in Vienna, spending a season with Sampdoria before moving to the Spanish capital. He tasted European success in his second campaign in Madrid, helping the Merengues oust holders Dortmund in the semis. The midfielder then came up against former team-mate Davids in the decider against Juventus, held at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The showpiece was again settled by a solitary goal, Predrag Mijatović doing the damage midway through the second half to earn Madrid a first European Cup in 32 years. "It had become more than an obsession for the club," said Seedorf. "Every day we'd go and eat in a restaurant and all everyone talked about was the final. Now I'm going to have a party [in Amsterdam] and then again in Madrid!"

2002/03 and 2006/07: AC Milan
The Netherlands schemer joined Internazionale in 2000 and two years later signed for the Nerazzurri's city rivals. He promptly lifted Europe's biggest prize in his first term with Milan, beating former sides Madrid, Ajax and Inter along the way. Milan edged out Juventus in the final, prevailing on penalties – Seedorf missed his – after a goalless draw at Old Trafford.

"It's incredible, incredible," he said. "I am so, so happy. It has been a great spectacle for us, a great atmosphere, a great stadium." There was still more to come. Runners-up in 2005, Seedorf and Carlo Ancelotti's side gained revenge with victory against Liverpool in the 2007 showpiece in Athens, Filippo Inzaghi scoring both goals.

An impressive achievement! Can you replicate it?
