Another classic piece of football art that makes the hearts of shirt collectors beat faster. The team that was founded in Rome in 1927 played in the 1994-95 season in this beautiful jersey from the Japanese brand Asics. The Jersey has everything that a good football shirt should have, a beautiful watermark, a nice classic logo of La Lupa and a striking colour combination. At the beginning of the decade, Roma suffered a trauma when they lost the final of the UEFA Cup to compatriot Inter 2-1. Unfortunately Roma did not achieve their best results in the 90s, the performances were generally underwhelming. But this was compensated with the outfits of the Romans, because year after year they produced beautiful shirts.
Born Roman Francesco Statuto turned professional at Roma, but only made his debut in the Romans' first team via a diversion past Udinese and Casertana. He made 74 appearances for AS Roma and three international appearances for Gli Azzuri.
