This is the fully-customizable short-sleeve home kit for Manchester United’s 1998-1999 and 1999-2000 seasons.
The short-sleeve Manchester United jersey for the 1998-99 and 1999-2000 seasons. These were two of the most successful Manchester United seasons ever, and the players were wearing these jerseys for their first division matches, a competition which they won both seasons with astonishing dominance.
In the 1998-1999 season, they won it on the last day of the season, as it was a very tight race to the top. The Red Devils had only a one-point advance on their second-place opponents, who had a great team with Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira, and other legends. That season, they’ve also worn this kit to win the Champions League with an incredible comeback against Bayern Munich, which is one of the most astonishing moments in football history. Finally, they’ve also won the F.A. Cup by defeating Newcastle in the final with goals from Teddy Sheringham and Paul Scholes.
Talking about players, they’ve had some incredible talents. David Beckham, the iconic Englishman whose right foot could bend the ball just about anywhere, Paul Scholes, who Xavi named the best midfielder he ever saw playing, Ryan Giggs, the flamboyant and incredibly accurate and direct Welsh maestro, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United’s best-ever super-sub and manager, as well as Teddy Sheringham, an incredibly talented attacker or second striker. And these were just some of the players since there was also Kasper Schmeichel, Jaap Stam, Andy Cole, and Dwight Yorke – two of the best-ever attackers of the first division, and finally, the ferocious captain Roy Keane.
In the 1999-2000 season, United extended their first division dominance in this jersey with a record 18-point margin and 96 goals scored. However, they were much less successful in the Champions League, as they went out in the Quarter-finals against Real Madrid after a hard-fought second-leg at Old Trafford. They also lost the UEFA Supercup at the start of the season against the greatest Lazio of all time, while also succumbing in the Charity Shield and League Cup. They won the Intercontinental Cup against Palmeiras and also competed in the first-ever Club World Cup, going out in the group stage after poor performances. This was a heavy season, as the Red Devils fought for 7 titles. Yet, the dominant display in the first division made it a great season. We also have the short-sleeve and the long-sleeve 1999 Barcelona final special-edition jerseys, which were also worn for the European Cups by Manchester United, while this jersey here was worn domestically.
