Manchester United Women’s star Millie Turner hits out at the club’s kit manufacturer for getting her name wrong on their official website.
It’s an embarrassing mistake and one they have jumped quickly to fix.
Manchester United unveiled their new home strip on social media today, as Stretty News revealed they would last night.
It draws upon the classic Manchester United kit of the 1960s, but with sponsors to put a big black on it. (Probably time we accept this because sponsors are going nowhere)
Millie Turner, who plays in defence for the women’s team, was featured on the Adidas storefront. The problem is, she was referred to as Amy Turner. A disgrace after she has passed the 50 appearance milestone for the club.
Turner took to Twitter to tweet: “Considering I’ve been at Manchester United for 3 years and an adidas athlete for 2… You’d like to think adidas would get my name right.”

We already know Manchester United have lot to work to do to repair the mess with the women’s team and those involved in PR at the club must be thinking things couldn’t get any worse after The Athletic’s reveal all article and the awful hiccup from Adidas.
From second standard facilities to selling our best player, Lauren James, to direct rivals Chelsea.
It is disgusting that female players remain exasperated by the quality of facilities at the club’s Carrington training ground, where they change in portacabins in the car park.
On top of that, issues with the pitch used by the women’s team have went unaddressed.
That is not a fair playing park when you consider the size of this club, and Manchester United should be thriving to lead by example across the board.
It’s also a huge real shame that we’ve lost a manager and character like Casey Stoney through all the chaos.
