Match Issued & Signed Shirt
Did you Know?
This is the 2018/2019 snake skin style of Napoli S.S.C. Europa League goalkeeper’s shirt, that looks very similar to the above Serie A version. But if you take a closer view you’ll see some differences. First of all Europa League’s shirts have fluo Kappa’s logos on sides while Serie A shirts have white. But the main difference is that the Europa League’s shirts don’t have the snake’s head on the back because Uefa didn’t allow the team to use the snake’s design on the back. So Napoli goalkeepers played with the same snake skin’s style on front in Serie A and Europa League’s games but they played with snake’s head on the back only in Serie A games. Look down and beside to see the differences.
