Manchester City fans have slammed the Etihad Stadium club and Puma for producing the ‘worst kit of all-time’.
Having coasted to a third Premier League title in four seasons, home and away shirts have already been released as £100million signing Jack Grealish and co continue to sport the new looks.
However, while responses to those two kits has, generally, been positive, the same cannot be said for the navy blue number which is set to hit the shelves.
As per these initial leaked images from FootyHeadlines, the strip will take a unique approach by not having the City crest feature prominently on the front of the design.
Instead, sports manufacturers Puma have this season decided to replace badges with the club’s name – as the brand have done with a number of other high-profile teams they supply.
Needless to say, that disregard for tradition is one of several issues people have pointed to in their verdicts.
Here are a selection of comments made by City supporters about the release on social media platform Twitter;
@MCFCAJ10 said: “Yep, it’s just as horrific as the leaks suggested.”
@IsaacMCFC_ posted: “It’s worse than the leaks.”
@Ali_Szn14 added: “Honestly, it’s the worst kit I’ve seen in a while…”
