Super Eagles legend Jay-Jay Okocha‘s former club, Paris Saint Germain (PSG), have launched their new home kit for the 2023/2024 season. This development was made known through the club's official Twitter handle on Wednesday.
PSG's shirt sponsors, Nike, rebranded their jersey from the previous seasons for the new season ahead.

The Nike PSG 2023/2024 home shirt is navy with a red stripe on the left which fades towards the bottom of the shirt. There's also a fading white stripe on the left and right of the red stripe, inspired by the team's classic Hechter design. The design is inspired by how the Parisian skyline fades into the night sky. It will interest you to know that the Swoosh is red and not white. All other sponsor logos of the club have white in them.
The PSG Jersey Worn By Jay-Jay Okocha
The Nike Paris Saint Germain 2023-2024 home football shirt brings back memories of PSG's jerseys of the early 2000s which were worn by Nigeria's very own Jay-Jay Okocha.

The club's iconic red and white stripes transitioned into a clear blue colour, reflecting how lights mix into the landscape of the city of Paris. Fans all but noticed the similarities between the new jersey and the ones Okocha wore in his days, as current players like Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Hakimi modeled the new 2023/2024 home kit.
Iconic Players Who Played With Jay-Jay Okocha at PSG
There are other great players alongside the Super Eagles legend who donned the iconic Parisien jersey from the 2000s. They include the likes of Ronaldinho de Gaucho, Gabriel Heinze, Nicolas Anelka, and Mauricio Pochettino.

How Buy the New PSG 2023/2024 Home Kit?
You can get this kit online through the official Nike online store, which delivers shipments across the globe. Also you can get the Nike PSG 2023-2024 home football shirt at the price of 95 Euros (replica)/150 Euros (authentic) at independent retailers outlets from June 3rd.
Is the PSG 2023/2024 Home Kit Worth it?
Usually when club's and national teams launch new kits, public appeal is necessary. On this note, the new PSG 2023/2024 home kit by Nike at Football Kit Archive is rated 3.5 out of 5 Stars. At the moment, the kit's appeal is not exciting but that could change in the coming months.
What's Next For PSG?
Preparation has shifted from the club's new shirt release to their game against Clermont on Saturday. The game will see PSG hoist the Ligue 1 title as champions for the 2022/2023 French top-flight season. Since the new kit is for next season, we can't say it'll be worn in their matchup with Clermont.
