Manchester United’s new away kit looks to have been leaked online, and it’s a lovely design paying tribute to an old classic.
According to the leak, next season’s away kit will draw inspiration from the iconic strip Manchester United wore on the road between 1990 and 1992. The Manchester Evening News also reported the same regarding United’s away shirt earlier this month.
According to the latest ‘leak’, Manchester United’s secondary shirt will officially be referred to as ‘Cloud White’ and it will feature the same colour used in rivals Arsenal’s current away strip. The jersey will sport a faded blue graphic print on the fabric as well as red logos.
The reliable Footy Headlines have released an image of the latest Man Utd away shirt that is set to come out for the 2021/22 season, and you can take a look at it below.
Adidas to bring back the Trefoil logo with Manchester United’s away kit
It is also understood the shirt will be the first major football shirt to incorporate the classic Adidas Trefoil logo, which was a feature of several iconic kits in English football between 1971 and 1991.
And here’s the kit this retro design is paying tribute to – from happier times at Old Trafford.
The classic shirt worn by Sir Alex Ferguson’s men during the final days of the Division One was seen as a groundbreaking and innovative effort at the time. Despite missing out on the league title in the first year of its inception, Manchester United did claim the League Cup in the first-ever Premier League season in 1992.
