Manchester City are known for their sky-blue home shirts, but the Premier League champions also have a penchant for a purple away kit.
Over the years, the club has experimented with different hues of purple, sometimes it’s a maroon colour, sometimes it’s part of the home kit’s trim (Europa League kits in 2011 has purple numbers) and sometimes they produce a wonderful, purple beauty as their away kit.
One such away kit could be seen in 1992. In fact, it’s possibly one of the club’s most iconic away shirts – excluding the fluorescent number they wore in the 1999 play-off final against Gillingham.
Everything about it is classy. The Brother sponsor, the Umbro design and the white vertical stripes, make this one for the ages.
Back then, City may not have been the powerhouse they are now, but they still had some handy players who bossed it in this kit. David White and Niall Quinn were banging goals in, while Keith Curle, Terry Phelan deputised in defence, and player-manager Peter Reid and the prodigious talent Paul Lake played in midfield.
