See AC Milan's new home-shirt ahead of the 2016/17 season

Despite the last many years going against AC Milan football-wise, they are still an absolute football powerhouse in Italy. Now adidas reveal a devilish new home-shirt. Check it out.

The traditions connected with AC Milan are so grand that the club will always be seen as a big club and no matter what tournament you play against the Milanese in, you will always show their heritage respect. This might also come as a result of the club’s founder, Herbert Kilpins famous words: “We are a team of devils. Our colours are red as fire and black to invoke fear in our opponents!”

This is the quote adidas have chosen to base the new AC Milan home-shirt design on. The red front panels are made to illustrate dripping blood and considering how long ‘Il Diavolo’ has gone without trophies they must be feeling a thirst for blood by now.

I’m not sure I entirely love the design, but you gotta give it to adidas, the story behind it is pretty sweet. The question is, will it invoke fear into the hearts of their opponents next season and bring them back to their former strength.
