Shinjae Lee: My first Barcelona football shirt

We caught up with the founder of South Korean streetwear brand Nivelcrack, Shinjae Lee about his first ever Barcelona shirt and how he felt watching Messi score in the Nou Camp.

What was your first football shirt?

2002 Barcelona shirt Riquelme

2002 Barcelona Nike home shirt. One day, after playing football with friends in another town, one of them asked to swap the jersey with me.  I thought it was kind of cool.  Not the jersey we has but the action itself.  So I swapped it.  It was 96-97 Dortmund home shirt which was fake.



What is your favourite football shirt?

Luiz Hernandez Mexico

1998 Aba Sport aztec shirt for Mexico. 1998 is the first World Cup in my memory. When I was watching the match between Korea and Mexico, Luis Hernandez in the jersey blew me away even though he scored two goals against us and we lost the match.



What is your favourite football moment?

First Champions League match that I watched in Camp Nou. I can’t explain how I felt when I listened to the UCL theme song in live. It was the match between Barcelona and PSG in 2014. Barcelona won 3-1 scored by Messi, Suarez and Neymar.
