Manchester United have released their 2020/21 third kit ahead of the new season and it is quite outlandish, to put it mildly after the new shirt and shorts resemble that of a zebra.
The third kit has been met with a mixed bag of reviews, which has certainly caused a stir.
Abandoning the classic red, the Red Devils have gone with a white and black pattern that resembles a zebra.
Both the shirt and shorts match the pattern, which Adidas has stated “pushes the boundaries of shirt design”.
Adidas stated upon release: “From United’s first striped kit over 100 years ago, to the eye-catching designs of the 1970s and 80s, the latest release aims to provide a fresh update to tradition, while delivering a vibrant new print.
“To create this new design, adidas re-drew, hacked and re-imagined combined elements from various jerseys throughout the club’s long history to create a bold new pattern.
“Utilising United’s iconic club colours of red, white and black the kit is an original story with a modern update.
“The result is surprising, unexpected and demonstrates a continued ambition to push the boundaries of shirt design.
“While the team will take to the field wearing the jersey with accompanying white shorts and white socks, there will also be a short and sock with the same pattern as the shirt, available for fans to buy.
“The kit is available today exclusively at adidas.com/football, adidas stores, and official club stores. Wider release with select retailers will be available from 15th September 2020.”
