One word pops into your head upon seeing this kit. Batigol. What a player. What a club. What an absolutely addictive love affair. Tears upon his departure and he now has a statue outside the stadium to commemorate his greatness playing in La Viola. It’s a wonderful purple by the way. Brought to the fore of the European conscious by the exploits of Batistuta, Rui Costa and Francesco Toldo, Fiorentina were one of Europe’s most attractive club sides and this kit one of the continent’s most attractive. This was Channel 4 Football Italia at its best, ITV Champions League at its best, Italian football at its best. Batigooooooooooooooool.
