Team Barcelona set to break the tradition, will appear in a different avatar at El Clasico
For the first time ever, team Barcelona will have a little makeover. Before you jump the guns, let us inform you that it’s with regards to the team's t-shirts. It came as a delightful surprise when on Wednesday, Barcelona made it official that their players will flaunt special shirts while locking horns with their fierce rivals Real Madrid. So here's the thing, the shirts that team Barcelona will wear shall have names of players in Chinese above their number. Interesting much!
'This action is added to the video of congratulation for the Chinese New Year that was made by the club and released this Monday, with the participation of first-team players Leo Messi, Gerard Pique, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Samuel Umtiti,' said a statement released by the club. 'This year is also an important one for the strategy of the establishment of Barca in China, which will experience its most important moment next summer when the first team will visit China and Japan on their pre-season tour,' the statement read further.
This is probably for the first time that the Spanish giant will break the tradition and bring such a change in their t-shirts.
Aiming to get a fifth win in a row, Barcelona needs to beat Madrid to get into the finals. Also, ace player Lionel Messi has been given a clean chit to fight against Real despite injuring his thigh while playing against Valencia in the weekend.
