Palmeiras announced, last Thursday (24), its new third shirt for the 2023 season.

The debut of the shirt, provided by Puma, will be against Vasco da Gama, next weekend, for the Brasileirão. However, even if the reference is to the players who defend Verdão in recent seasons, the fans made many references to a player who made history at Palestra at the beginning of the 21st century.

The passage of Valdivia in Palmeiras

Valdívia arrived at the club in 2007, where he began to draw a trajectory worthy of an idol at Palmeiras. His debut was in the victory against Rio Branco-SP, by 2 to 1, in Paulistão that year. Marked by his controversies, the player gained the affection of Palmeiras with the ‘kick in the vacuum’, his characteristic dribble.

The Chilean midfielder stayed at Verdão for nine seasons at the São Paulo club, playing 241 games, with 122 wins, 61 draws and 58 defeats. Valdívia scored 41 goals and won the Campeonato Paulista, Campeonato Brasileiro Série B and two editions of the Copa do Brasil.

New shirt, old memories

The lime green shirt is one of the favorites of Palmeiras fans in recent retrospect. This is because, the last edition released, still by the supplier Adidas, dressed the champion squad of the Copa do Brasil in 2012.

The uniform was a sales success and was a reissue of the shirt launched in 2007. Both were worn by Chilean midfielder Jorge Valdívia, who became immediately associated with the shade of green.
