Some of the all time greats have graced the white of Real Madrid – Di Stefano, Puskas, Kopa, Zidane, Raul, Sanchez and of course nowadays Ronaldo. Take a look at the retro Real Madrid shirts you can get to emulate your heroes:
Despite being maybe the most successful team in world football and hugely dominant in European football in recent years, Real’s period of winning five successive European Cups from 1956 to 1960 means that I still remember that amazing team being talked about growing up. In the more recent past I remember Michael Owen and Steve McManaman both having relatively successful spells there. Steve
Favourite player: Ronaldo – could be either but the Portuguese for his unbelievable goal haul
Favourite kit: The 1986-88 home shirt. Pure, simple, classic hummel design. Available from Vintage Football Shirts (see below for links)
Classic Football Shirts set themselves apart from many other companies by the fact that their shirts are all original shirts from the dates listed, not reproductions trying to replicate a classic shirt. All shirts come with condition details – ie whether they are in Mint Condition, As New, etc, etc. The prices are slightly higher but you are really getting a piece of history.
They have over 500 classic Real Madrid shirts and pieces of kit from 1978 to the present day. These include the 1986-88 home shirt (above).
This classic Hummel shirt was worn by Real legends Emilio Butragueno and Hugo Sanchez as their strike partnership fired Real to three successive titles in a period of real dominance.
You can also get the 1994-96 away shirt. This eye catching designed away shirt, with its bright colours was worn when ex Argentina international Jorge Valdano was the coach.
It was also the shirt that youth-academy player Raul wore when on 29 October 1994, at the age of 17, he made his debut for Madrid. Raul went on to play 550 times for Madrid, scoring 228 goals and becoming at true club legend.

This shirt was worn during a topsy turvy season that saw Madrid actually finish fifth in La Liga but win the Champions League, beating Spanish rivals Valencia 3-0 in the final with goals from Morientes, Raul and Steve McManaman.
The was the first trophy for coach Vicente Del Bosque, the first final between two teams from the same nation and featured Man of the Match McManaman becoming the first English player to lift the trophy with a foreign club.
