Shaqiri: I hope Puma don’t make condoms


Even though he was not personally affected, Switzerland forward Xherdan Shaqiri questioned the standard of the Puma attire he and his teammates wore on Sunday against France.

The red jerseys of Admir Mehmedi, Breel Embolo, Blerim Dzemaili and Granit Xhaka all were ripped apart in the first half, with the new Arsenal player forced to go through three kits at Stade Pierre Mauroy.
I hope Puma don’t make condoms,” Shaqiri told Swiss television channel SRF.Retired English striker Gary Lineker joked on Twitter about the suspicious quality of German products.”Swiss team’s Puma shirts tearing like paper.

Adidas ball bursting. You can never rely on German efficiency!,” wrote Lineker.In turn, Puma quickly dismissed the critics through a statement, pointing to an outlying production flaw as the cause of the jersey tears.”Our analysis of the Swiss jerseys used on Sunday shows that the starting material was damaged during the production process, provoking the fragility of the match jerseys,” Puma stated.

The faulty fabric was just used on a limited number of Swiss jerseys.”It won’t happen again.”The German brand remarked the quality of the jerseys used in the 10 previous Euro 2016 matches of the teams they sponsor.The jerseys were made in Turkey, according to Puma.
