The passion for football knows no age. Such is seen in case of Ines, a fan of the Serie A giants AC Milan, as the club recently celebrated her 100th birthday, who has been supporting the Rossoneri for well above 80 years!
The old woman has been a fan for the Milan elites since she was only a teenager, and was a regular visitor of San Siro until she turned 87.
On 10th September, the club celebrated her centenary by presenting her a club kit, made in silk, with her name and the no. 100 on the back, signed by the players.
The video of Ines unveiling the gift was posted by the club’s official Twitter. Watch the clip below-

It was also revealed that the century old lady also possesses the football that was used in the 1982 FIFA World Cup final match between Italy and West Germany, the year when her home country lifted the trophy for the 3rd time.
It is a thrilling fact that Ines has seen AC Milan lift the Serie A trophy for the first time in 1951, and also the club’s all seven European Cup/Champions League victories, beginning since 1963, till the last one in 2007.
Milan are facing Hellas Verona FC on 16th September at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
