Images of Manchester United's reported new home kit have been leaked and it's... different
It's certainly a new look.
Manchester United are a club proud of their traditions. Bringing the youth through. The iconic number seven shirt. The red shirt, white shorts, and black socks.
One of those traditions may be broken next season, as images of next season's kit have been leaked. The good folks at footyheadlines.com have blessed the internet with photographs that show the new kit to have a gradient design and black shorts.
Usually, the shirt design is simplistic, with a different trim every year. Maybe a collar, buttons or as we saw in 2009/10, a Rugby League-style V shape on the chest.
Some United fans might be disappointed by these leaked photos, as it hints at a deviation from the tradition of white shorts.
The top half: good. The bottom half: not as good.
What is all that about? Game's gone.
At least the shorts don't have unnecessary hoops on them, even if they are not the traditional colour.
Don't get us started on the socks though. United are not AC Milan. Simplicity is key to their kits, and one imagines this one won't go down too well.
This could be a result of the constant need for brands to reinvent kits every year. Long gone are the days of one new kit every two seasons.
