Aston Villa’s ‘wet look’ kit troubles persist as Alisha Lehmann becomes the latest casualty. Reports last month indicated the club’s desire to end their kit deal with Castore early due to players’ discomfort with the heavy and soggy shirts. This issue has affected both male and female players.
Aston Villa’s women’s team returned to WSL action with apprehension regarding the problematic kit. As expected, Lehmann experienced a wardrobe malfunction before kick-off, with fans noticing her discomfort due to her visibly protruding nipples.
Carla Ward, Aston Villa Women’s manager commented “It’s up to the football club’s legal team and Castore to discuss that and deal with that. It’s something I’ve tried to completely ignore as difficult as that is. The football club is in full control of that. They’ve been excellent with us, myself, and the players around it.”
Football commentator Jacqui Oatley added, “You can imagine, as a female athlete, you have plenty enough to think about just being the best you can be on the football field without thinking about getting sweaty and your kit clinging to you.”
Lehmann, often dubbed the world’s sexiest footballer, has over 15 million Instagram followers. She joined Villa from West Ham in 2021, following a brief loan spell at Everton.
This season he played in total once for 66 minutes for Women’s Super League.
Alisha Lehmann didn’t score any goal for Aston Villa W. He procured no assists. He received no yellow cards and no red cards.
