Kit of the Week #8: The Blood & Gold of Esperance de Tunis

After a short break, our Kit of the Week feature returns with a trip to North Africa, paying tribute to Umbro and the Blood and Gold of Esperance de Tunis.

Tunisian club Esperance overcame a first leg deficit to record their 3rd African Champions League title with a 3-0 victory over Egyptian giants Al Ahly on Friday night in Tunis.

Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, Esperance de Tunis can thank a double from midfielder Saad Bguir (a bench-warmer for much of the season) and Anice Badri for the goals that secured their triumph at the Stade Olympique de Rades in the Tunisian capital.

Esperance’s red and yellow striped shirts will now require the addition of a 3rd star above the club’s badge.

With a classic Roy of the Rovers colourway and the stylish cut and shape we’ve come to expect from Sartorial Soccer heroes Umbro, the Blood & Gold will now travel to the United Arab Emirates to take part in December’s World Club Cup against the likes of Real Madrid and the yet to be determined winners of the Copa Libertadores final between Boca Juniors and River Plate.
