Olympique de Marseille’s super-clean white home jersey by Puma has been unveiled to fans via Twitter overnight, with the ultra-wearable design set to be debuted against Montpellier this weekend.
Perhaps best known for his infamous “Why Always Me?” celebration from his time at Manchester City, Italian striker Mario Balotelli models the 2019/20 home kit alongside central defender Adil Rami and Wolverhampton transfer-target Morgan Sanson.
Predominantly white, the shirt features thin, light blue pinstripes which upon closer inspection are comprised of the words ‘Olympique de Marseille’.
The club’s old logo is woven into the bottom left corner of the shirt, marking the 120th anniversary of the Olympique de Marseille football club, whilst a blue cross appears on the back of the neck as a tribute to France’s second-largest city.
Whilst promotional photos have to this point featured clean, sponsor-less jerseys, photos from last night's Ligue 1 matchup seem to indicate that French telecommunications company Orange will be reprising their front-of-shirt sponsorship from previous seasons.
White shorts and socks with blue trim complete Marseille’s 2019/20 home kit.
