‘Leaked’ new Liverpool kit resembles ‘lime-flavoured Battenberg’ with fans split

Liverpool's leaked away kit for the upcoming 2023/24 Premier League season has split opinion online with fans unsure about the supposed green and white chequered design.

A throwback to the 1995/96 campaign under Roy Evans, the unconfirmed kit has patterned green oblongs in opposite corners of the shirt, underneath and adjacent to the liver bird club crest, which merge together in the middle alongside sponsor Standard Chartered.

Kit website FootyHeadlines have a history of accurately reporting next season's shirts ahead of their official release and have once again gone early by leaking Liverpool's away strip. Alongside white and green shirts, the FA Cup holders are set to don black shorts and white socks, which will hold a green trim at the top.

All Liverpool logos and sponsors will be emblazoned in black on the shirt, matching the trim on the neck and on the end of the sleeves. The badge and Nike tick on the shorts are white with the manufacturer's logo displayed in green at the front of the sock.

The leaked strip has caused a stir on social media with fans ambivalent on its eye-catching design. "Printing machine ran out of ink and this was the result," slammed one supporter. "Single-handedly the worst kit I’ve ever seen," stated another. "I really can't see myself walking around in a paint chart," harked a third.

While a fourth blasted the club for ripping off popular computer game Minecraft with the design, asking "Why are there Minecraft Creepers on our kit??" Even optical experts Specsavers commented: "Lime-flavoured Battenberg."

Despite the initial negative reviews, there was a segment of support for the supposed away kit. "I’m buying this asap," praised one fan. "Actually awesome," commented a second.

"Its a cool attempt to make a modern version of a classic kit," commended a third. "This is growing on me. Like it – Nike starting to come good with their kits for us," acknowledged a fourth.

With the kit seemingly ready for 23/24, Liverpool now face the challenge of trying to add Champions League sleeve patches. Jurgen Klopp's side are three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and hold a game in hand over the north Londoners.

However, Newcastle United are one point behind the Reds with an additional match to play. A potential route to top-tier European football could hinge on claiming a seventh Champions League crown.
