Barcelona’s new home kit has provoked plenty of discussion after it was officially released on Monday.

The club have opted for a checkerboard look rather than the club’s traditional stripes which does not appear to have gone down too well initially.

However, Gerard Pique has offered his thoughts on the shirt and reckons it does the job.

“The kit is something new and exciting,” he said. “It might be different but it is 100 per cent Barca and it is even better that the design represents the bond the club has with the supporters and the people who are driving the city forward”.

It’s true that the kit is very different but it certainly is not “100 per cent” Barca no matter what Pique says.
