Real Madrid 12/13 away jersey – KAKA’ 8

Kaka’ was bought as a Galactico to take Real Madrid to the top of world football. He arrived at the Bernabeu alongside with Ronaldo, Alonso, and Benzema during the summer of 2009. However, while the 3 others shone right from the beginning the time of Kaka was marred by injuries. Similarities to Hazard would often spring to mind. Kaka was great for São Paulo FC, did well for the Brazilian national team, and rose to the very top with AC Milan. Expectations were great but apart from the occasionally display of greatness Kaka’s stay at the Bernabeu will be remembered mainly for not living up the expectations.

The away jersey 2012/13 was pretty stylish though. Dark navy with neon contrast. The printing could have been neon as well but the club opted for white which could then be applied for the third kit as well.

Real Madrid is from the year 1902 thus in 2012 the club celebrated a 110th anniversary. Usually not a great anniversary but in the case of football clubs and shirt designers any kind of occasion is ceased to build a story and a design upon.

To the right arm sleeve the jersey is equipped with LFP sleeve badge.

The club logo is embroidered and not in plastic. A huge advantage since embroidery tends to age much better than plastic logos.
