We caught up with Renato Silva Gonçalves, writer for Barca Blaugranes to talk classic São Paulo FC shirts, Barcelona design and that Messi goal against Manchester United. This interview was part of our My First Football Shirt series.
What was your first football shirt?
Throwback to the 2005 season, when Rogerio Ceni scored 21 goals for São Paulo to help the club win the Libertadores and the Club World Cup.
My favorite goal has to be Lionel Messi’s in the 2011 Champions League final against Manchester United. It was his first goal in England, it was giant to win the game, and it was Pep Guardiola football in a nutshell: great possession football, midfield dominance, and Messi Magic. Unforgettable.
Check out our marketplace for some banging vintage Barcelona shirts and give us a follow on Instagram for some of this.
