Manchester United’s new home strip was on show for the first time last night as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reserve team beat Curzon Ashton 4-0 in a pre-season friendly. Ahead of the official, considerably more glitzy, launch in the US, Solskjaer’s side donned the new retro kit. Somebody, somewhere isn’t going to be popular with the Old Trafford hierarchy!
The question is will you buy the official £49.99 strip or seek alternatives?
With both profits from shirt sales (although minimal due to the nature of the deal with Nike) and exposure for United’s principal sponsor Aon on the cards, many anti-Glazer fans have decided to boycott the new kit.
After all, there are choices, with the Manchester United Supporters’ Trust (MUST) launching its own black, green and gold kit recently and the grey market offering cheaper ‘official looking’ kits.
