Mönchengladbach The current jersey was a mix of different eras, the season was as mixed as the design. Borussia Mönchengladbach’s new look is clearer and more straightforward. When will the jersey be officially unveiled and when will it be available.
It is a good tradition that Borussia’s last home game is a fashionable preview of the new season. Around 1899 Hoffenheim on Saturday (15.30, Sky) Gladbach will be wearing their next home outfit for the first time: a white shirt with a black and green vertical stripe in the middle. It is interrupted by the letters of the main sponsor. Shorts and socks are white. The design quotes the Gladbach tradition, but is at the same time a completely new look.
The black and green double stripe adorned Borussia jerseys from the years 1971 to 1973, but it was placed to the right of the viewer, the diamond was placed on top. The outfit is responsible for, among other things, the famous rifle throw against Inter Milan. In the run-up, the always well-informed portal “Footy Headlines” had for once speculated wrongly when it showed a version that reproduced this particular jersey. Shortly after, “Footy Headlines” also leaked the actual version. Our editors can confirm this. However, Borussia will not officially unveil the set until Saturday morning, when it will be available to fans immediately.
“It’s a variation of the famous jersey from 1971 with the same vertical stripe of color placement now in the middle instead of on the left as before. There was already such a new edition with Lotto, so I would have been surprised if Puma had done that again, “jersey expert Steve Appenowitz told our editorial staff. He described this season’s jersey as a mix of different Borussia eras and sees the volatile season reflected in it.” current season, this new home kit is a step forward, “said Appenowitz.
The current season stands for ups and downs, for the epoch-making 5-0 victory against FC Bayern, but above all too many bitter defeats, including the historic 0-6 at home against SC Freiburg, it stands for constant unrest, for incompleteness , for instability, for the loss of the aura of unanimity that has lasted for more than a decade, for a mixture that did not fit.
In the new season, Borussia wants to be straight and ready again in terms of sports and content, just like the new jersey. “The jersey makes a neat and good impression when laid out in the middle and shared by the sponsor flock,” Appenowitz says. It’s reminiscent of the big 70’s, but it’s a version that never existed as a player jersey. However, there is a reference with a vertical center stripe: the legendary goalkeeper jersey by Wolfgang Kleff. Interpretive approach: Borussia has an urgent need to reduce the number of goals conceded after two open seasons. It fits the reference to the strong man behind Torfabrikken.
The new jersey has style, it is based on the history of the club, on the time of the legendary Fohlenelfs, but it is a version that only exists in the present. On the “Footy Headlines” portal, it is currently rated as the best by users of all known new outfits in Europe. Kit expert Appenowitz also likes it, but is not his favorite in Puma’s modern era, which started in 2018. “At first glance, I do not think it comes close to the first Puma jersey after the return and the simple white and black jersey in the Champions League season 2020/21. As always, it’s a matter of taste, “he says.
