Hulk, Joao Moutinho, Rolando, James Rodríguez and Helton helped their club reveal their 2011/2012 kits at The Yeatman Hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal.
The Nike manufactured kits are all made from recycled plastic bottles. On the recommendation of the players, the shirts are collar-less.
Moutinho spoke to the press at the launching ceremony and said:
“The new kits are great, even because they’re environmentally friendly. I hope they’ll bring us good luck and victories, like last year.
We are trying to incorporate the coach’s ideas with utmost rigor. He has his own ideas and believes he can further improve the team. The new teammates are both great people and players and I’m certain they’ll help FC Porto.
We always aim to win all the competitions in which we play. We will give our all on the pitch to prove that we are the best.”
Porto striker Hulk also talked to the press:
“All the kits are very good, very light, both the playing and the training gear. Personally, I’m eager to play and take to the field!
We have to remain level-headed and humble. We’re working well, we’re concentrated and we’ll be focusing on our objective: winning titles.
Coach Vítor Pereira helped us a lot last year and we will be doing our best to help him as well, to win the title once more. The best part of FC Porto is the locker room: those that have been around for a longer period help the others fit in quickly.
I have five more years on my contract and will be pleased to fulfill them.”
Porto 11/12 Kits:
The highlight change in the home kit is the fact that the shirt’s central stripe is blue again.
The away kit is dark blue and has purple and blue details across the chest reminiscent of the 2003/04 season.
The inscription “Winning since 1893” can be seen inside all of the shirts.
