Fiorentina 1992 - No.9 Batistuta.


Though the season itself was far from Fiorentina’s finest moment (they were relegated from Serie A for the first time in 55 years after dive-bombing down the table from sitting second behind Milan in December), their 1992/93 away strip was very nearly a wonderful piece of work.

With a relatively reserved design (considering we’re talking about the early-to-mid 90s here!), a cool 'pop'-culture sponsor and a Viola-drenched colour palette that was rather pleasing to any young burgeoning Football Italia addict’s eye, Fiorentina’s garb was a joy to behold through innocent, unknowing eyes.

Sadly though, there was one small, purely coincidental design flaw that rendered La Viola’s change strip controversial – it was covered in swastikas!
Rumours quickly spread that the club – who were infamous for their fascist tendencies during WWII – had purposefully included the covert symbol into the design, though Fiorentina and manufacturer insisted that the design was purely accidental.
Regardless the shirt didnt appear the following season...
