Classic cut

We’ve gone big on red for our pick of the best shirts from the 2000/01 campaign – the colour being worn when the trophy was lifted at San Siro

WORDS Tayler Willson | PHOTOGRAPHY Chris Ower-Davis | Shirts courtesy of Classic Football Shirts | SHOOT LOCATION Powerleague Shoreditch

AC MILAN

This was a turbulent season for the Rossoneri, who finished sixth in Serie A and ended the season with club legend Cesare Maldini as caretaker manager. Unfortunately they were already out of the Champions League by the time he came in, finishing third in the second group stage, but at least their kit lived up to past glories. Predominantly black with three strips of red down the front, it also featured three red stripes on each arm – and that famed adidas collar.

MANCHESTER UNITED

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side won the Premier League in 2001 but couldn’t match their domestic exploits in Europe, falling to Bayern München at the quarter-final stage. Still, their kit was a winner on all fronts: a particularly vibrant shade of red was complemented by thin black-and-white striping around a neat V-neck finish, not to mention those tight cuffs.

PSV EINDHOVEN

The 1988 European Cup winners are well known for their red-and-white stripes, but the 2000/01 take on this theme is arguably one of the finest. Donned by the likes of Mark van Bommel and Mateja Kežman during a season that saw them finish third in their group behind Anderlecht and Manchester United, the kit accentuates the stripes thanks to two clean white patches on either side. A classic collar completes the job.

BAYERN MÜNCHEN

After they’d knocked out Manchester United in the quarter-finals, the German side only went and won the whole thing, didn’t they? Their shoot-out victory over Valencia was accentuated by this classic silhouette; three crisp white stripes running down each arm make a lovely contrast to the rich red. Typical of adidas during the early 2000s, it was signed off with a heavyweight crewneck collar.
