“For the 3rd consecutive season, AS Monaco and the Copa are joining forces to revive a glorious page in the club’s history through the reissue of emblematic jerseys, after two first fruitful collaborations which focused on the 1977 seasons’ jerseys. – 82 and 1987-88 », specifies the press release of the ASM for the occasion.
A 6th national title conquered
This exercise occupies a very special place in the minds of fans of the Rocher club. Twelve lengths ahead of its runner-up, PSG, ASM had won the 6th title of French first division champion in its history that year.
Under the leadership of Jean Tigana, Thierry Henry, Sonny Anderson, Emmanuel Petit, Ali Benarbia and Fabien Barthez, the Asemists had been strong enough to lose only 5 times in 38 league days played. They had also failed at the gates of the UEFA Cup final by being eliminated by Inter in the semi-finals.
The supporters of the Principality club thus have the opportunity to obtain a version close to that of the time respecting the codes of yesteryear. The sponsor at the time Liptonic is obviously present in the center of this tunic mixing red and white, the two historic Monegasque colors.
