Christian Abbiati Biography

Christian Abbiati is an Italian professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Serie A club Milan. His debut in Serie A came on 17 January 1999 as a 92nd-minute substitute for Sebastiano Rossi. He then became Milan's first choice goalkeeper, for four years. Abbiati announced his desire to move to another club in order to contend for the #1 spot and was therefore loaned to Genoa for the 2005–06 season in July 2005. He was soon on the move again, as he was shipped to Juventus as a temporary replacement for incumbent Gianluigi Buffon. He was once again loaned out by Milan for the third time in three seasons, this time to Spanish club Atlético Madrid until June 2008. Abbiati returned to Italy after being called back by Milan for the 2008–09 season and took over as first choice from Zeljko Kalac after a solid preseason. Abbiati received his first call-up for Italy as the third goalkeeper for Euro 2000, and was part of the squad that participated in the 2000 Summer Olympics.
