Amidst the drama inside the PSG camp surrounding Messi and Neymar, their yet again UCL failure, and the coaching staff, FootyHeadlines has come forward with glimpses of the jersey the Parisian club would be sporting come the next season.
Keeping the traditional colors of Paris intact, Nike seems to has checked nearly all the boxes when it comes to the strip Mbappé and Co will be dawning next season.
With vertical white and red stripes on the navy base, the kit is a throwback to PSG’s Ronaldinho era of the early 2000s (particularly the year 2003, a season that saw PSG go trophyless). Depicted in white, Qatar Airways continues to be the primary shirt sponsor.
The navy blue follows the entire kit from the neckline to the sleeves. Though Nike could be called out for a lack of detail, this is easily one of the best kits they’ve designed so far this season (*cough* Liverpool *cough*).
Despite the absence of details though, the sober pattern of a red stripe surrounded by a pair of fading white stripes gives the abstract appearance to the Parisian outfit.
Just as in the current season, the accents at the back have been depicted in white, similar to the PSG crest. The latter lies on the thick red stripe mentioned earlier.
Interestingly, the Nike Swoosh is red in color, being the only exception to the white accented kit. Luxury resellers GOAT continue to sponsor the French super team, being the sleeve sponsor.
A patch of red at the bottom left marks the vertical end of the kit.
Notably, the combination of the fading red stripe with a pair of fading white stripes is stated to be inspired by the team’s classic Hechter design, the one worn in the early 2000s and similar to the current season’s home strip.
As far as the early reviews are concerned, the majority of the fan reactions seem to be positive, though it’s hard to find reactions surrounding PSG’s kits with all that usually goes around the club.
“Must buy” was the reaction of a fan after glimpses of the kit were leaked online. “This is fire” commented another fan. The demands for an all-black kit still continue to be ever-present among the fans though. “Definitely buying this” was the reaction of another Twitter user, commenting on the leak.
After getting knocked out of both European and cup competitions, Galtier and his men now must focus on securing the league title once again. With 8 games to go, PSG sit comfortably on top of the table, six points ahead of second-placed Lens.
