Plenty of Liverpool fans voiced their displeasure about the latest images of our Nike home shirt for the 2020/21 campaign.
The Reds overcame a court battle last year against New Balance which allowed us to move over to the American sportswear company from next season. This was because we allegedly broke the terms of our contract. The Kop faithful have already reacted negatively to the goalkeeper shirt and they were split on the away kit.
Footy Headlines revealed images of the predominantly red shirt with white and teal cuffs, which will be the same colour the Portugal 2018 World Cup shirt.
What are your thoughts on this kit?
The report also adds that the kit will be launched before 1st June 2020 due to the supplier change. With the current campaign postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it is unclear when we will start seeing football again.
Because of this, supporters were not impressed with the leaked images and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that
This ain’t great tbh.

Just not a fan. Bland. Surely Nike can do better than that. Just do it

Years of imagining what the a Nike Liverpool kit would look like and I’m a bit underwhelmed ngl. Let’s hope it looks better in the official unveiling https://t.co/hSb9vK2zk5
