Perhaps wanting a bit more inspiration for its title push in the 2021/22 Premier League season, Manchester City wore a pre-match shirt that immortalised one of the most iconic moments for the club. The special-edition top previewed Manchester City’s impressive 5-0 win against Newcastle United in match week 36. Gears such as the ’93:20′ shirt could help increase the passion and desire of the Cityzens to be first past the finish line, as the blues of Manchester go neck and neck with the Reds from the Merseyside in points and goal difference.
At first glance, the outfit showcases a white base with sky blue hoops as the primary visual design. However, the highlight is the image embedded in the fabric of the hooped pattern. The picture is a collection of stills of the famous Aguero goal that won the club its first English title in the Premier League era. Right on the backside below the neckline is the minute ’93:20,’ the exact time the striker scored his famous goal. In navy is the player number and name of Sergio Aguero, with Aguero spelt with multiple Os to commemorate Martin Tyler’s ecstatic commentary of the title-winning strike.
Accompanying the pre-match gear is a limited-edition Puma Ultra football boots that carry out the same Nrgy Blue and Glare green colour palette of the Argentine scorer’s Puma V1.11 at that time. Only 120 pairs will be available for the said Ultra speed boots.
“This is a great honor for me. I shared many incredible years at Manchester City, but the 93:20 goal was special. The atmosphere in the stadium, the comeback, the title, I have never experienced anything like it. I hope I made the Cityzens proud,” said Sergio Agüero.
“I have been a PUMA ambassador for over 10 years so for them to create this special jersey and boot is a beautiful gesture that brings back so many emotions from that special day.”
