Joe Jordan's centenary shirt, 1978/79

In August 1978, to celebrate the club’s centenary year, Manchester United staged a friendly against Real Madrid. Two goals apiece from Sammy McIlroy and Jimmy Greenhoff saw the Reds beat Real 4-0, in a fitting tribute to the club’s 100-year anniversary.

To honour our history, the shirts featured a special, almost deconstructed, version of the crest which was worn throughout the season.
