The Pope’s local club, San Lorenzo, wore these special jerseys in honour of Francis I

Habemus new jerseys!

BY NOW IT is well-known that Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the new Pope Francis I, is a card-carrying season ticket holder of his local football club, Buenos Aires club San Lorenzo.

San Lorenzo were in action against Colon de Santa Fe yesterday and in tribute to the new man in the Vatican, they wore jerseys with special Francis I badges.

The jersey below was worn by Denis Stracqualursi — remember him Everton fans?
