Christian Abbiati (Italian pronunciation: [ˈkristjan abˈbjati]; born 8 July 1977) is a retired Italian professional footballer who last played as a goalkeeper for Italian Serie A club Milan.

Abbiati, who had been with Milan since 1998, started his career with Monza, and later played more than 300 official matches for Milan. He also spent loan spells at Borgosesia Calcio, Juventus, Torino and Atletico Madrid. His honours include three Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia, two Supercoppa Italiana victories, one UEFA Champions League and one UEFA Super Cup.

Although he was selected by Italy at Euro 2000 (where the team reached the final), and the 2002 World Cup, he did not represent the nation until he made his international debut a 2–1 friendly win against Switzerland in 2003. In total, he was capped 4 times by the national team.

Abbiati currently holds the record for the most appearances as a goalkeeper for Milan. In his prime, Abbiati was regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in Italy, although he has also attracted controversy after expressing his far right wing political views.
