Bayern Munich are the undoubted Kings of Germany and one of the great teams in world football but for right or wrong I will always associate them with two moments of failure: 1) the 1993-94 season and a Jeremy Goss strike that saw Norwich City knock them out of the UEFA Cup, 2) The incredible 1999 Champions League Final when Manchester United scored twice in injury time to win the Final 2-1.

This shirt was worn during Bayern’s centenary season, which was aptly marked by the club winning their third league and cup double in their history. Icons such as Michael Ballack, Philip Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger donned the shirt during this season.
