Match worn/issued AC Milan 1996-1997 home shirt by number #10 Dejan Savićević in the pre-season. It is most likely worn in (or issued for) a pre-season tournament which was called the “Opel Master Cup“.
This shirt was worn in (or issued for) a friendly/pre-season match because the Serie A or Champions League logo patch is not present on the right sleeve. In August 1996, AC Milan took part in the Opel Master Cup together with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain. These teams participated because they were all sponsored by automobile manufacturer Opel. Each team played two games of which they all won one and lost one game. On goal difference, Bayern München lifted the cup. AC Milan wore this exact home shirt (with name/number set in the material) against Bayern Munich. Against PSG, they wore away kits.
Former Montenegrin attacking midfielder Savicevic played almost 100 matches for AC Milan in the period 1992-1998. He came from Red Star Belgrade and moved back in 1999 for a very short period. He ended his football career at Rapid Wien.
In this 1996-97 season, AC Milan finished 11th in the Serie A and reached the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia. They lost to Fiorentina in the Supercoppa Italia (in which Savicevic scored by the way). Their UEFA Champions League run already ended in the group stage.
This shirt has all the characteristic of a match shirt: correct player/match shirt size XL, correct size and style of the number/name set that was used in matches (with the name being outlined in a black thin line), but above all the name/number set is present within the material of the shirt (which was never the case for commercially available fanshop shirts).
