In Nike’s debut season as Roma’s kit supplier, they quickly erased the memory of the kit-supplier-less 2013-14 episode with a spectacular ‘Giallorossi’ classic! Using a very rich crimson for the main body and collar, only amber hoops on the sleeves and the Nike swoosh break up the red, in what was a simple yet nothing short of classy shirt. Roma would go without a main shirt sponsor for the 2014-15 season (bar the Chinese New Year celebratory decal used in 2015), and the retro look is perfectly complemented by the classic polo collar and button neck attachment. White shorts would be used, and for a 3rd consecutive season; matching crimson socks would be utilised instead of black socks.
A spectacular 2013-14 Serie A campaign would see Roma finish 2nd; their highest finish since the 2009-10 season! With Radja Nainggolan able to play a full season following his January 2014 acquisition; fans were truly optimistic at what Rudi Garcia’s side could achieve in 2014-15, and in addition, had a return to Champions League football to also look forward too! One of their star performers: Medhi Benatia would leave the club for the pastures of Bayern Munich, however, their would significant investment in the summer as: Juan Iturbe, Antonio Sanabria, Kostas Manolas, Salih Ucan, Leandro Parades, Davide Astori, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Jose Holebas came in, as did the experience of: Seydou Keita, Ashley Cole and Urby Emanuelson was also recruited to once again challenge Juventus. 5 straight wins to start the season had fans believing they would surpass their brilliant 10-win opening in the previous season, however, a 3-2 defeat to Juventus on 05/10/14 quickly ended that dream. The Champions League foray began with a dream 5-1 over CSKA Moscow, however, their form soured and would finish 3rd in their group. Roma would enjoy a 16 match unbeaten in Serie A between November 9th to March 8th, however, 10 of those games ended in a draw. The 2015 portion of the season would see Roma hold Juventus, Fiorentina and Lazio to draws, before beating Lazio in the reverse fixture, and defeat also defeat 5th place Napoli. In the end, Roma would edge past Lazio to once again finish in 2nd place and runners up to Juventus.
