Roll the drums! Turn on the lights (in the true sense of the word)! And feast your eyes on the mega mannequin that depicts our new 2019/20 Away Kit, launched in Shanghai.
"We like different colors. It is a very beautiful jersey, we hope to have a lot of satisfaction wearing it on the pitch". The absolute novelty represented by white and red is very popular with Miralem Pjanic and not only with him... at least judging by the reactions of the team and the 1,500 guests present at the launch event.
The entire team was present at the Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing. The enormous virtual uniform placed at the center of the stage acted as a backdrop to the entry of the players, greeted one by one by a foreseeable roar. And like Pjanic, who displayed his appreciation for the shirt, Rabiot and de Ligt, on behalf of the whole group, thanked the fans for the affection shown in these last few days spent in China. Emre Can reiterated how this year Juve is "strong and determined, with a great desire to win".
The four were then shown their jackets with their names written in ideograms while their numbers were personalised with the symbol of the Chinese calendar corresponding to their year of birth and the key word for the new season: the rabbit and the glory for de Ligt, the rooster and peace for Emre Can, the pig and the victory for Rabiot and the horse and good luck for Pjanic. Each of the players received their jersey as a gift. So, after a dutiful group selfie, we were cheered to a "Force Juve" by the audience, which closed the event, confirming once again how much passion the Bianconeri colors are in this part of the world.
