Spanish Papers: Marca & AS deny ‘Spanish Republic’ shirt claimsNovember 7, 2017
Good Morning and welcome to our round-up of the Spanish Papers, which feature the new Spanish national shirt, which has caused a little controversy over its design.
As we head into the international break, Spain have released their official Russia World Cup shirt for next summer and it has caused controversy amidst the problems surfacing in Catalonia.
The shirt which is similar to that of the 1994 shirt worn by the country features yellow and blue down the left hand side, but many claims have said it is honouring the Spanish Republic.
AS have been quick to deny those claims and say the shirt has been tested and it is blue and not purple – the colour which features in the Republic’s flag.
Moving on to Marca and they pick up on the shirt too, backing AS’s claims of the colour.
Whilst the Madrid daily also picks up on Zinedine Zidane’s work to get Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo ready for both the games with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona which are upcoming.
Moving over to Catalonia and Mundo Deportivo do not discuss the new Spanish national shirt and instead claim Ajax youngster De Ligt, who has become a target for Ernesto Valverde.
Whilst they promote the rumours of Neymar replacing Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
