Manchester United Retro Jersey 1980
Featuring the traditional adidas trefoil logo, no sponsor and the iconic embroidered Manchester United logo, the 1980 home kit truly is a piece of history. The sleek and simplistic design embodies the club’s growth during the period, and possesses a uniquely vintage style.
Worn by Manchester United during the 1980-1981 season, players including Steve Coppell, Ray Wilkins, Kevin Moran and prolific Scottish striker Joe Jordan, who scored 15 league goals led United to an 8th place finish in the English league. In the first season the kit was worn (1980-81), manager Dave Sexton paid a club record fee of £1million for the transfer of Garry Birtles from Nottingham Forest. Shortly after his dismissal, legendary manager Ron Atkinson immediately smashed the British transfer record to purchase England midfielder Bryan Robson from West Bromwich Albion for £1.5million, who helped United achieve a successful 3rd place finish the following season.
