SEGUNDA B side UD Almeria have confirmed that their kits will now adorn an image of a fish in memory of Gabriel Cruz.

Los Rojiblancos confirmed that they had requested permission from both the Professional Foootball league and Gabriel’s family to add the logo before announcing the news on their official club website.

The ‘pescaito’, kit will make its debut this weekend as the side travel to Valladolid for their La Liga 123 fixture,

They had initially planned to have the image on their shirt next to their club crest but regulations unfortunately did not allow that.

The image of the ‘pescaito’, which became a symbol during the search for the eight-year-old, will now be placed on the players’ shorts, just above their Nike sponsorship logo and will remain on the team’s kit for the remainder of the season.

When the side wear their famous red shorts, the image will be in blue but when they wear blue shorts the image will appear in white.
