Are Lionel Messi jerseys out of stock?
It sounds crazy, but it is true. The German sports brand, Adidas, is finding it difficult to cope with the ever-rising demand for Messi’s No.10 Argentina jersey. People from around the world have also complained that the Messi jerseys are already out of stock and unavailable. From the looks of it, the worldwide stocks of the iconic jersey are considerably depleting, while in some places already stocked out.
Angry fans then began to point fingers at the Argentine Football Association. According to Marca, the AFA, harassed by complaints, came out a few days ago: “We can’t do anything about it, although it’s in our interest to sell more. It is a matter of Adidas and there are problems in the country that affect them, such as the obstacles to imports and the lack of manpower, as well as the high level of public anger.”
Adidas then explained by saying that it was impossible to suddenly increase the total amount of jerseys we regularly produce overnight to cope with this unreal demand. However, the German brand is currently working against the clock to try to meet the gigantic demand for the iconic jersey.
Messi leaving behind a legacy to remember!
Honestly, it’s no surprise that the world wants to purchase the iconic jersey. The former Barcelona veteran is playing his final game for Argentina. Messi set a club record by winning 35 trophies with FC Barcelona.
