AC Milan have unveiled a limited edition kit to celebrate the club's 120th anniversary, with the Rossoneri set to showcase the jerseys this month.
Modeled by midfield star Suso, the shirt keeps most of the same design features as their current 19-20 kit, with thin red and black horizontal strips and black trim around the sleeve and collar, but changes the sponsor, manufacturer Puma and club badge from white to gold.
The number 120 can also be seen below the new gold badge on the front of the jersey and the body of the shirt features a quote from Milan's English founder Herbert Kilpin upon founding the club in 1899.
