We caught up with captain of Guerrilla FC, Justin Salhani, about his first black Monaco kit, adidas x France '98 shirts and Riquelme ruining Yepes. This interview was part of our My First Football Shirt series.
What was your first football shirt?
I am struggling to remember. Probably a youth football t-shirt. The first kit I bought was probably around 2001 when I was 13/14 years old - it was a black Kappa Monaco kit with a red collar and gold stitching. The first kits I can remember being in my closet were Arsenal and Manchester United shirts.
My favourite professional shirt is the France '98 blue kit. I always liked when France & Adidas collaborated. But these days I like the stuff the creative community is making. Really original and fresh.
What is your favourite football moment?
