With Liverpool's new home strip for 2010-12 finally being made public this week, we asked five of our most popular players to lift the lid on their first kit.
Dirk Kuyt's first kit: "It was probably an AC Milan shirt because at the time they had van Basten, Gullit and Rijkaard. I used to have those names on the back. These days my kids have the Liverpool home, away and third kits. They love running around in them and wear them every time they go to the match."
sorry this is no news but I hope you will still help me out. Since I will go to a charity match in May I need a Zidane jersey very very fast. Sadly the only jerseys I can find are either size XL or more or they are these new editions from 2008 or 2010. I however want an original jersey, one that he had while he was playing. It doesn't matter to me if it is Real Madrid or France. (or anything else, but those will be even harder to find) Also I wear size S. So I would look ridiculous in an XL shirt. *LOL*
I would be very happy if someone could help me. On ebay I only found one potential shirt and it seems they only deliver it to France, argh! Also it should be located in Europe, because I fear a shirt from the US or anywhere else would take too long to be delivered.
Thanks in advance and I hope this won't be deleted.
With cheap ticket prices and sound financial management, the Bundesliga is the antithesis of the Premier League

In Germany the fan is king. The Bundesliga has the lowest ticket prices and the highest average attendance of Europe's five major leagues. At Borussia Dortmund their giant stand holds 26,000 and costs little more than £10 for admission. Clubs limit the number of season tickets to ensure everyone has a chance to see the games, and the away team has the right to 10% of the available capacity. Match tickets double as free rail passes with supporters travelling in a relaxed atmosphere in which they can sing, drink beer to wash down their sausages, and are generally treated as desirables: a philosophy English fans can only dream of.
