Official Umbro Manchester United home football shirt from the 1990/1991 season.

Condition of this vintage football shirt is 6/10 Fair.  Small hole on the front, some bobbles and pulls scattered around (see photos).

Fantastic looking shirt, ideal for a collector or for framing and a great piece of football memorabilia.

After winning the  FA Cup  the previous year to end a five-year trophy drought and claim their first major trophy under the management of  Alex Ferguson, United went on to achieve more success by lifting the  European Cup Winners' Cup   their first major trophy since their  European Cup  triumph 23 years earlier by beating  Barcelona  2 1 in  Rotterdam, with  Mark Hughes  scoring both goals. It was the first season back in European competitions for English clubs following the lifting of the ban which had been imposed back in 1985 due to the  Heysel Stadium disaster.

Hughes was voted  PFA Player of the Year, while promising young winger  Lee Sharpe  was voted  PFA Young Player of the Year. Fellow winger  Ryan Giggs, aged 17 and said to be the club's finest young prospect since  George Best, signed a professional contract in late November, and soon broke into the first team, making two league appearances and scoring one goal.

A new arrival at the club was full-back  Denis Irwin, signed from Oldham Athletic for a fee of £625,000 in the close season. Following his impressive performance in the previous season's FA Cup final replay, Les Sealey's loan move became permanent on a one-year contract, and he surprisingly left at the end of the season despite being the club's first choice goalkeeper for the season.

United also reached the League Cup final for the second time, but suffered a shock defeat to  Sheffield Wednesday (managed by former United boss  Ron Atkinson). In the league, United improved upon the previous season's 13th place finish, but erratic form meant they finished sixth and were below neighbours  Manchester City  for the first time in more than a decade. Their defence of the FA Cup ended in the Fifth Round when they lost 2 1 to  Norwich City.
