Man United drop new 1960s-inspired kit but fans are split

Man United have released their new Adidas kit for the 2020/21 campaign using inspiration from the days of George Best, but fans are split.

The kit was rolled out today as preparations get underway for the upcoming season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side hoping to build on their runners-up finish last season and bring home the trophy that’s evaded them for eight years now – the Premier League.

The idea is a mark of a good team is a good kit – which is why there is so much onus on its design.

Once again, the designers have gone for the nostalgic look, hoping to rekindle their years under Best in the 1960s with a simplistic look, a white-collar and sleeves.

The kit was released with a promo using some of their top players including Bruno Fernandes, Ederson Cavani, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.

Their former logo Chevrolet has been exchanged for TeamViewer.

Their site reads: “The new shirt was presented this morning by Adidas, just under a month before it will be worn in the Premier League for the first time for the visit of Leeds United to Old Trafford on 14 August, and in several pre-season friendlies before then.

“The launch brought the first sight of TeamViewer on the front of a Manchester United shirt at the start of a five-year partnership between the club and one of Europe’s leading software companies.”

Tops retail at £65 for a normal and £100 for an authentic.

Divided opinion

However, supporters of the club have given their thoughts on the new attire and the consensus is straight down the middle.

Of course, being online means users are not holding back on their thoughts about the latest “drop”.

What do you think to the new look?
