AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf will become the seventh player to make 100 UEFA Champions League appearances after being selected for tonight's Group D encounter with Celtic FC.
The 31-year-old, a European champion with AFC Ajax, Real Madrid CF and Milan, joins team-mate Paolo Maldini in the '100 club', alongside Raúl González, Roberto Carlos, David Beckham, Oliver Kahn and Luís Figo. "The desire is even greater now I'm coming towards the end of my career," Seedorf told uefa.com before last season's Athens final triumph over Liverpool FC. "You want to take as many trophies home as possible. The clock is ticking."
The Dutch international – the only player to have won the UEFA Champions League with three different clubs – could be followed in reaching three figures by Manchester United FC midfielder Ryan Giggs next week. Giggs is one match shy of the mark. Gary Neville and Paul Scholes, meanwhile, have clocked up 98 and 97 appearances respectively.
