Manchester City have unveiled their new away shirt and have admitted in their launch that it is inspired by the legendary colours of AC Milan.
It is in fact a throwback to the shirt that City wore in the 1969 FA Cup final triumph, and in turn that shirt – as mentioned several times in the presentation video published on Twitter – was ‘inspired by AC Milan’.
The video even goes on to mention club icons such as Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Nesta and Filippo Inzaghi, and features some images of the team from 1899.
Ever heard the one about the red and black stripes?
