1998-99 Inter Milan Home Shirt Size Small - Ronaldo #9
Team: Inter Milan (Internazionale)
Era: 1998-99 (Used for the 1998-99 Serie A season)
Name/Number: Ronaldo #9
CONDITION: VERY GOOD
This now 20 year old jersey still stands in very good condition, with the material, felt sponsor, Nike swoosh and crest remaining in fine nick. Sadly, the name and numbering has broken in places and has started to fade, however in spite of this; the remnants still leave the print in somewhat credible condition. Moreover, the side panels show little wear relatively speaking.
Pit to Pit Measurement: 19 inches
Shirt Length: 28.5 inches
Despite the ill-fittings of shirts from the 90’s, the dimensions of this shirt provide an excellent size small fitting shirt. Please bare in mind also, that the sleeves are quite long on this shirt.
Nike took over from Umbro as Inter Milan’s kit supplier ahead of the 1998-99 season, and it was no surprise given that they had Nike’s most prized asset amongst their ranks in the legendary Ronaldo, who had just taken on the #9 shirt! After last season’s fine 2nd place finish and UEFA Cup victory; the club added the icon known as Roberto Baggio to join Ronaldo upfront in what was set to become one of the most irresistible attacking duets in world football. Sadly, the season would be filled with nothing more tumult as the club had 4 separate coaches employed throughout the season, as they stumbled to an 8th place Serie A finish, and a disappointing Champions League quarter final defeat to Manchester United. This debut offering from Nike remains an Inter classic; with the classy collar, and cleaner finish than its Umbro predecessor, giving the shirt a modern feel as the 20th century was coming to its end.
The notable players that season were:
Ronaldo, Roberto Baggio, Nwankwo Kanu, Ivan Zamarano, Nicola Ventola, Alvaro Recoba, Aaron Winter, Benoit Cauet, Paolo Sousa, Andrea Pirlo, Youri Djorkaeff, Ze Elias, Javier Zanetti, Fabio Galante, Salvatore Fresi, Taribo West, Dario Simic, Mikael Silvestre, Giuseppe Bergomi, Sebastien Frey, Gianluca Pagliuca
