- Manchester United’s away kit for next season has reportedly been leaked
- The ‘army’ coloured strip also features the Adidas three-stripe on the shoulders

- Fans were divided over design with one calling it ‘boring’ but others were happy
Manchester United’s away kit for the 202/21 season has been leaked online, with supporters delivering a mixed response on the new design from longterm partner Adidas.
The dark strip has been called an ‘army’ colour, with the classic Adidas three stripes on the shoulder and the logo and club badge all in white.
The outfit was derided by some as ‘boring’ but others admitted relief that it appeared to be chosen over other mooted designs that had circulated online.

The Red Devils are currently five years into a 10-year deal with manufacturers Adidas after putting pen to paper on a contract worth £75million a year.
However, failure to qualify for the Champions League may cost them around £4.5million per year of that deal, according to the Athletic.
Yet one fan was disenchanted enough with the kit to ask ‘Can we drop Adidas?’.
Another joked that it was ‘finally a kit that doesn’t cause epileptic seizures,’ with a third grateful it was not the rumoured ‘zebra crossing’ or bus seat’ options that have been shared online.
This is set to be one of three utilised by the club during next season, following the apparent leaking of the home shirt earlier this week.
The official launch of Manchester United’s 2020-21 home kit is set to happen in June, with the away kit due to follow in July. There was more praise for the home shirt on Wednesday.
One fan said the 2020-21 design was ‘fire’, whilst another alluded to the fact that ‘someone had been listening’ after earlier designs were critiqued.
