Inter Milan’s new kit brings touch of Formula 1 to Serie A
👕 | NEW KIT
— Inter (@Inter) September 9, 2019
Inter Milan have unveiled their new third kit for the 2019-20 Serie A season. Black with yellow trim, the retro-tinged strip is inspired not only by the Nerazzurri‘s iconic 1997-98 away shirt (made famous by Ronaldo) but also by the world of motorsport.
The retro appointments include a crew neck (apparently a throwback to Inter’s Treble-winning 2009-10 kit) and the old Nike “Futura” logo on the chest.
Also, rather than the usual two-tone Pirelli logo seen on Inter shirts since 1995, the tyre company’s classic yellow-and-red marque has been incorporated instead.
Gabriel Jesus gets “El Chavo del Ocho”-inspired tattoo

Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus needs no extra superpowers, but this week he got more inspiration after he had three characters from “El Chavo del Ocho,” the legendary Mexico comedy show, tattooed on his left thigh.
One of the three characters was El Chapulin Colorado, a superhero in red whose powers included shrinking down to the size of a small coin, which may be useful when Brazil international striker Gabriel Jesus weaves his way through defenders in the Premier League.
The tattoo will also no doubt endear him to his fans in Brazil and Latin America. The show’s creator, Mexican comedy legend Roberto Gomez Bolanos, may have died in 2014, but his 1970s comedy still transcends generations and borders and lives on through syndication in Latin America and Brazil.
