In 1995 Ruud Gullit joined Chelsea on a free transfer and got to wear one of the most spectacular football shirts that has graced the Premier League. The 1994-96 Chelsea away shirt.
It took a while for Ruud to adjust to the pace and quality of his Chelsea team mates.
I would take a difficult ball, control it, make space and play a good ball in front of the right back, except that he didn’t want that pass. Eventually Glenn said to me, ‘Ruud, it would be better if you do these things in midfield.
But it didn’t take long for him to adjust to his new Chelsea shirt.
The 1994-96 Chelsea away shirt is a Chelsea classic for 3 reasons;
- Its grey and orange – what an absolutely nuts combo that has not been seen on a Chelsea or Premier League shirt since.
- It’s sponsored by Coors – much better than a generic gambling company
- It’ll remind you off Ruud, trying to playing a one-two with Michael Duberry
