Swiss Football Player Rips Puma Over Jersey Fiasco
While the 0-0 final score of this weekend's Switzerland/France meeting in the 2016 Euro tournament suggests a pretty boring match, the Swiss soccer team's frequently shredding jerseys provided some excitement. Over the course of the match, four players' Puma -made tops were ripped. The delicate jerseys drew criticism from Swiss players, with winger Xherdan Shaqiri calling out Puma with a low blow. "I hope Puma does not produce condoms," he said, per the Guardian . For its part, Puma says the problem was limited to a small number of jerseys. "There was one batch of material, where yarns had been damaged during the production process, leading to a weakening in the final garment,” the company told the Wall Street Journal .
