He has had a long career starting for Genoa in the 1991-1992 season moved to AC Milan for the 1993-1994 season where he found his mentor Fabio Capello.

He won the European Cup with Milan in 1994 and made his international debut in September 1994 against Slovenia.

He did not become a regular team member as an ongoing feud with the national manager Arrigo Saachi restricted his appearances.

He was excluded from the European Championship squad in 1996, and when Arrigo Saachi became Milan manager late in 1996, Christian left to join Real Madrid.

He established himself as a regular member of the team and won another European Cup in 1998.

He moved back to Italy and Inter Milan for the 1999-2000 season but could not settle and after loan spells at Chelsea and AC Monaco he signed fro the French side on a permanent basis at the start of the 2001-02 season.

He could not settle and rejoined Fabio Capello at AS Roma on loan until the end of the season.

His performances earned him an international recall after being absent since February 2000.
