Man United unveil kit for new season

Monday 7th July , 2014 8:09 am

Manchester United are the latest Premier League club to unveil their new home kit for the forthcoming season.


The strip remains in the club’s traditional colours – red, white and black – with a new-look white collar.


There is also a small label inside the back of the neck with the message ‘youth, courage, greatness’, which is said to signify the club’s values.

Southampton, West Ham United and Liverpool appear to have embraced the past with their new designs.


The Saints have returned to red-and-white stripes, while the new home shirt of the Hammers is similar to that worn in 1985-6, when they finished third in the old First Division, their highest top-flight placing.


Liverpool have gone for a yellow-coloured second shirt.

Everton’s new home jersey features a retro collar while promoted Queens Park Rangers have gone for thinner blue and white hoops.


Others to unveil this season’s colours so far include Chelsea, Stoke City, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.


Manchester United are in the final year of their agreement with Nike, who are thought to be one of three companies competing to win the new rights when the current deal expires.
