Who does this Barcelona shirt remind you of?

We asked Instragram who this 1998 Barcelona home shirt reminded them of.  Kluivert, Guardiola, Xavi & Figo all got a mention but the stand out winner was Rivaldo. 

In 1998/99 Barcelona were managed by Louis Van Gaal.  There was a huge Dutch contingent in the squad – 9 players in total – but it was a Brazilian than stole the show. Rivaldo scored 24 league goals, 29 in total that helped Barcelona win La Liga. He scored some ridiculous goals.  Chips, volleys, headers.  If you’ve got 10 minutes watch this video below.

My favourite from this season is the chip from the edge of the box.

My favourite ever Rivaldo goal has to be his overhead kick hat trick goal to secure a Champions League spot in 2001.
