Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected as the Catholic Church’s Pope last Thursday, taking the name of Francis. The 76-year old from Buenos Aires is the first Latin American Pope and by now you are probably wondering why this is being reported on a football shirt site…
It turns out that Argentine club San Lorenzo have the privilege of having Pope Francis as one of the members of their club. As a special tribute, the club have designed a special shirt which will be sent to Pope Francis.
San Lorenzo de Almagro published an official statement showing their happiness and pride because of the designation of the Argentinian and San Lorenzo’s fan Jorge Bergoglio as the new Pope, while wishes him great success in his new responsibility.
