Legendary former AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko considers the 2003 Champions League semi-final tie against Inter to have been one of his most significant moments in a Rossoneri shirt.

Speaking to Milan TV, as reported by FCInterNews, the Rossoneri legend gave his recollection of a dramatic affair in which the Nerazzurri were knocked out on away goals by their city rivals who went on to win the competition.

Shevchenko won the Champions League twice with Milan in addition to appearing in and losing a final, helping to establish an enduring reputation for himself and for Carlo Ancelotti’s Milan side as one of the most accomplished in Europe’s top competition.

The first of the two final wins, Schevchenko’s first as a player and Ancelotti’s first as a coach, came against Juventus in 2003, but to get there the Rossoneri had to face a formidable derby against city rivals Inter, though Shevechnko states that he was always confident that they’d get the outcome they wanted.

“We believed that we’d win,” he said of the tie, “the team was ready to play in the final. It was a beautiful game for us players, it was a battle that we managed to win.”
