MANCHESTER UNITED’S new home kit for next season has been leaked online.
Website Footy Headlines, who specialise in getting images of kits ahead of their launch, claim to have seen the United’s new release.
The new kit is a huge change from anything Adidas or former kit suppliers Umbro or Nike have designed for United in modern times.
United’s new home shirt is still the traditional red but with a new twist – black stripes across the shirt that become more prominent the further down they go.
The shirts are set to black instead of the normal white and the socks are in a similar vein to the shirts with the black stripes.
Next season’s kit is “inspired by the railway men that formed the club.”
The club were formed in 1878 as Newton Heath LYR Football Club by the Carriage and Wagon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway depot at Newton Heath.
With railways in the 19th century often being red with black, it seems “clever” by Adidas to take this as inspiration for the latest design.
The new Manchester United 2018-2019 home kit is set for a release in May and some United fans on social media are not impressed.
