Pic: Has Linford Christie shown the world what Arsenal’s new PUMA kit will look like?
The British sprinter’s now deleted picture may be the first glimpse we have of the new Arsenal kit for 2014-15.
While it hasn’t been officially announced, everybody seems to believe that Arsenal will have their gear manufactured by PUMA next season, ending the Londoners association with Nike.
And at a PUMA do this week, it seems that a kit which may well be the one Arsenal wear next season was present. And, thanks to Linford Christie, we have a picture of it.
The former sprinter tweeted a picture of himself with Bacary Sagna, Thierry Henry and Olivier Giroud and Henry and Giroud are wearing PUMA designed Arsenal gear.
Henry’s home shirt looks very slick indeed, while Giroud is surely wearing a training top rather than a new away kit.
Christie has since deleted the tweet but it has been grabbed and shared all over the place today. Probably our first 'leaked jersey' story of the new season and it is only October.
