PICTURES of Manchester United’s new home kit have reportedly been leaked – but Red Devils fans are not convinced.
The jersey is understood to be a tribute to the club’s historic Treble-winning side of 1999.
The design has been leaked by Footy Headlines and shows the United red shirt with the club’s crest on a black-and-gold shield.
But it looks over-simplistic, as the sleeve cuffs – in only slightly darker red – are barely distinguished from the rest of the shirt.
Adidas’ characteristic three stripes are also very subtly highlighted at the top, with black trim appearing on the neck only.
The design, with its black and gold features, is reportedly meant to pay homage to the Red Devils’ Treble-winning side of 1999.
That is when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s injury-time goal sealed the historic victory against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
But some fans appear to be disappointing with the looks of the jersey.
One wrote: “That’s really s**t. Literally f**k all going on. Adidas have been awful bar the home and away in their first season and the black one last year especially as they’ve got all the 80’s/very early 90’s stuff to fall back on.”
While another added: “The badge looks awful in black.”
And a third just simply wrote: “Horrific.”

The shirt, however, would surely bring fond memories back for Solskajer – who has just been appointed United’s permanent manager.
Following his impressive spell at Old Trafford, the Norwegian, 46, signed a three-year deal with the Red Devils.
The club will unveil a huge banner on Saturday in a clash against Watford to officially welcome Solskjaer – an honour that was not given to previous managers Jose Mourinho, David Moyes or Louis van Gaal.
