As part of Adidas’ new range of fits introduced ahead of the 2015-16 season; this shirt is a fantastic size small fitting football shirt.
Beautifully complimenting the fantastic home shirt; Adidas would also craft a sensational grey and volt away strip for ‘Los Blancos’ ahead of the 2015-16 season, Unlike the home shirt which features a waffle print material; the away shirt is crafted with a very a soft material, while the Adidas template that season would see the 2-tone being spread across the light grey used for the main body of the shirt, and a darker grey that was used for the sleeves and hem, and the shorts. This shirt would utilise a heat applied plastic crest which has been expertly modified to grey and white to compliment the rest of the strip.
After a 2014-15 season that started so brightly, but ultimately ended in disappointment and the consequent departure of Carlo Ancelotti as head coach. Rafa Benitez would be brought in from Napoli as the club’s recruitment policy took a swift turn in favour of youth over superstars; with: Mateo Kovacic, Lucas Vasquez, Danilo, Jesus Vallejo and Marco Asensio being brought in, while Casemiro and Denis Cheryshev returned from their respective loan spells away from the club. After winning both the Chinese and Australian versions of the 2015 International Champions Cup, the La Liga campaign began with a disappointing goalless draw, however the new Real Madrid tenure would start with 7 wins and 3 draws in the opening 10 La Liga rounds to reach the summit of the division. Back to back defeats to Sevilla, and more damming, Barcelona, would spell the end for Rafa Benitez as he was relieved of his duties shortly after the New Year. It should be noted that Benitez did oversee an 8-0 crushing of Malmo in the Champions League and a 10-2 dismantling of Rayo Vallecano on 20/12/15, but the jury was seemingly made on the former Valencia coach. With the club sitting in 3rd place and 5 points shy of league leaders Barcelona; the club legend: Zinedine Zidane would be given the baton to run with, and he would oversee an incredible run of 17 wins in 20 La Liga outings, including a first win at the Camp Nou since 2012 in the league. ‘Los Blancos’ would finish just a point behind Barcelona in the end, meanwhile, in Europe, Real would see off the challenges of: Roma, Wolfsburg and Manchester City to set up a rematch of the 2014 finale against Atletico Madrid. In yet another tense showdown between these city rivals; Real would eventually prevail on penalties after the teams drew 1-1 over 120 minutes; this Champions League triumph would go down as the ‘Un-Decima’; signifying their 11th European Cup glory!
The notable players that season were:
Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Borja Mayoral, Jese, Lucas Vasquez, Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez, Isco, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, Mateo Kovacic, Danilo, Dani Carvajal, Marcelo, Nacho, Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Arbeloa, Pepe, Raphael Varane, Keylor Navas, Kiko Casilla
