SOT, Mario (Spanish): "If it [Barcelona] has to be more or less (politically-involved), I think that the shirt and the way it looks shows that it is trying to go with the will of the people and it's what it needs a bit commercially."

SOT, Juanma (Catalan): "It's complicated, those who are from Barcelona and are catalans have to take a stand in a way. I think that the influence of Barca is really important in the society and the truth, I don't know what to say, all that I can say is that I don't know, I'm not taking a stand."

SCRIPT
A new FC Barcelona shirt was put on sale in the Catalan capital on Wednesday, with its motif being the red-and-yellow coloured 'senyera' which is synonymous with the region.
Five hundred of the shirts also featured a motto reading 'Ho Portem Dins', translating from Catalan to English as 'It’s deep within us.'
Four red stripes, which appear horizontally on the Catalan flag, slice down from the right-hand-shoulder of the yellow jersey.
"I think of the influence (the Jersey) has on the Catalan society and its history, and we will have to contribute more to the Catalan society," said a local fan.
The club’s hierarchy has openly backed independence and several key figures from Barca have aligned themselves with the separatist movement, including Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and current centre-back Gerard Pique, both of whom have represented Spain and Catalonia at international level.
