Memories flood back of Ronaldinho toe poking one in at Stamford Bridge, of Messi in a baggy shirt during his early days and even further back, an athletic Rivaldo driving at defenders.

According to Footy Headlines, Nike will look to reinstall the colour into the club's change kit design from next season. It has not confirmed if the shirt will feature the thick horizontal navy block or the pin stripes, both designs including blue and red pin stripes.


Fans have been quick to react and show imagination on the reveal, with many on Twitter keen to see the return of that 2001-02 shirt worn by Luis Enriqué, Kluivert and a young Xavi.

Barcelona will help the nostalgia of the team wearing the all gold strip on course for the La Liga title in 2004-05, inspired by Samuel Eto'o, Deco and an emerging Andreas Iniesta can inspire a new era of success and identity.
