In the AC Milan kit canon, one shirt stands out.

While there have been muted gold hues in recent times, the rich yellow of 1994-95 has no companion and it only saw action once, in claiming a European trophy, albeit not a major one.

As often related before, in the mid-1990s, UEFA mandated that home teams should change kit and this was what happened when Milan met Arsenal in the 1994-95 European Supercup.

In the scoreless first leg at Highbury, the Gunners were in navy but, for the game in the San Siro, their red and white kit meant that neither of Milan’s first two choices were available.

So it was that Fabio Capello’s side won 2-0, with goals from Zvonimir Boban and Daniele Massaro, looking most un-Milan-like.
