Man Utd’s new home kit officially unveiled; loads of fans point out problem with design concept

There are a number of fans mocking Manchester United’s new home kit for the 2019/20 season.

The new strip pays homage to the remarkable treble winning season in 1999, with current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scoring in stoppage time in the Champions League final win over Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

While I’m all for throwing a retro feel into each strip design, this hardly works. We’re a Europa League side next season and they’ve missed the opportunity to do this on the 20th anniversary – by a year!

One concept with the new kit’s design is the time ’90+3’ on the sleeve in reference to that iconic goal, but it’s a shame that the kit won’t ever be worn in the Champions League because Manchester United only qualified for the Europa League next season after missing out on a top four finish.

Many will argue that the kit should have released last year to mark the 20th anniversary of that memorable night at Camp Nou. At least it would have been work in the competition it celebrates!

But United won’t mind when sales continue to high ridiculous heights. Ed Woodward will be looking to hang his jacket on some marque signing who doesn’t fit what United are trying to do.

The fans have been casting their opinions on the shirt via Twitter (see below).
