Aston Villa are investigating with Castore, their kit supplier, why the jerseys become soaked with sweat too quickly and prevent perspiration.
Aston Villa players have complained that the shirts from their supplier, Castore, are getting soaked very quickly and could be affecting their performances at the start of the season.
According to the British newspaper ‘The Telegraph’, several Aston Villa players have reported to the management that the shirts get soaked very quickly and stick to the body, preventing perspiration and giving a wet effect just 10 minutes after the start of the match.
Both Unai Emery and the Villa board are aware of the problem and are working with the British brand Castore to find a solution. This problem affects all three Villa kits but is most visible on the first one.
Villa reached a long-term deal with Castore last season to become their official shirt supplier. Castore is also Newcastle’s kit supplier, but the Magpies decided to let the contract run out at the end of this season to switch to Adidas.
Despite this handicap, Villa have started the season with a good momentum, with 4 wins in their first 6 Premier League games. This has lifted them up to sixth place, with 12 points, 2 points away from the Champions League places.
