The latest FC Porto kits for the upcoming season were presented at The Yeatman hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, overlooking the Douro River.
The kits are in fact a working gear that, through hard work, can become tuxedos for the victories. On the players’ recommendation, the shirts are collarless, thus providing greater comfort.
Highlight goes to the fact that the home shirt’s central stripe is blue again. The away kit, in dark blue, has purple details that bring to mind the historic 2003/04 season. The inscription “Winning since 1893” can be seen inside all of the shirts. The technology used has remained the same: all kits are made from recycled plastic bottles.
Footballers Hulk, João Moutinho, Rolando, James and Helton were present at the ceremony. The first two spoke to the media, highlighting the quality of the new kits, in addition to the work they have been carrying out in preparation for the start of the new season.
“The new kits are great, even because they’re environmentally friendly. I hope they’ll bring us good luck and victories, like last year. We are trying to incorporate the coach's ideas with utmost rigor. He has his own ideas and believes he can further improve the team. The new teammates are both great people and players and I’m certain they’ll help FC Porto. We always aim to win all the competitions in which we play. We will give our all on the pitch to prove that we are the best.”
Hulk: remain “level-headed”
“All the kits are very good, very light, both the playing and the training gear. Personally, I’m eager to play and take to the field! We have to remain level-headed and humble. We’re working well, we’re concentrated and we’ll be focusing on our objective: winning titles. Coach Vítor Pereira helped us a lot last year and we will be doing our best to help him as well, to win the title once more. The best part of FC Porto is the locker room: those that have been around for a longer period help the others fit in quickly. I have five more years on my contract and will be pleased to fulfil them.”
