It has been circulating on social networks for some time and it is becoming more and more important that it is a reality. Atlético's shirt for the 2022-23 season, with crooked red-and-white stripes along it, has sparked outrage from its own fans and laughter from rivals. An idea of the Nike brand, inspired according to the official justification in the meanders of the Manzanares River, which promises to live with controversy.
It is not the first time that changes in Atlético's kit have raised dust. Already that of the season that has just concluded, with bear claws scattered throughout the clothing, unleashed a wave of criticism. Greater was the one of 2006, when Nike tried to eliminate the stripes of the main clothing, converted into bicolor.
The murmur of protests was such that the club moved it to the third kit and recovered the stripes for the first.
On this occasion, before the occurrence becomes official, the rejection has already skyrocketed on networks. And the laughter of the rival fans.
