Home short sleeve shirt as worn during the 2019/20 season by Josip Iličić. The Slovenian forward could be considered something of a 'late bloomer', especially given that he almost gave up playing at the age of 21. At the time, his club Interblock had just been relegated from the top tier of Slovenian football and he was no longer a regular starter in the first XI. However, a phone call from Zlatko Zahovic, Director of Football at Maribor, turned out to be a life changing moment. Iličić was offered the chance to join Slovenia's most successful club and after agreeing terms, he made an immediate impact by scoring twice against Hibernian in a Europa League qualifier. In the following round versus Palermo he scored again and so impressive was his performance, the Sicilians decided to sign him for a reported fee of €2.3 million. Since moving to Italy, Iličić's career has gone from strength to strength and in 2013 he left Palermo to join Fiorentina, where he spent four successful seasons. However, it is with Atalanta that he has found international acclaim - his four goals in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League round of 16 match against Valencia secured a 4-3 victory and ensured Atalanta qualified for the quarter finals. He also became the first ever player in the competition to score four goals in an away tie of the knockout stages, as well as the oldest player to score four goals in a single Champions League match.
This Joma home shirt comes in the Bergamo club's traditional blue and black stripes and also features a ribbed polo collar. On the back neck is printed 'Atalanta BC 1907', whilst on the inside is a message of encouragement for the players - ' La Maglia Sudata Sempre'. It can roughly be translated as 'the jersey is always sweaty', but we promise you this particular one is in Brand New With Tags condition.
Please note that Joma shirt is tighter than usual sizes. We recommend you to consider one size larger than your normal choice.
