The start of a new season brings forward new players to a club and in some cases new managers whilst this is not the situation of Real Madrid as they will be sticking around with Carlo Ancelotti, the man that made his debut in charge of the club by winning the Champions League and the Copa del Rey they will be however introducing new players to the pitch as well as a new third kit for this season.
The new kit was designed by Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto and features 2 dragons which are supposed to represent: ‘’the power, greatness and glory’’ of the club. This all-black kit will be worn during the Champions League journey that Real Madrid will be going through in this season.
During the unveiling of this new kit, Gareth Bale took the chance to express some of his own and the clubs’ objectives for this new campaign as the Welshman wants to make history with Real Madrid by becoming the first club to protect the Champions League silverware.
Gareth Bale said: “I think for all of us at the club, to win the Champions League was a dream last year and it was one the club has been trying to win for a while. We’re now looking to the future and want to win the Champions League again and win as many trophies as we can. We want to try and make history and be the only club to win the Champions League back-to-back. There’s always pressure at a club like Real Madrid and we love to thrive off that pressure. We’ll be doing that again this season.”
The Welshman is eager on lifting more trophies with Real Madrid but it will be easier said than done as their rivals Barcelona has strengthened their squad by signing players such as: Luis Suarez, Thomas Vermaelen and Jeremy Mathieu. Barcelona is also hungry for titles.
