Manchester United fans are not impressed with the club’s new away kit, which has been officially unveiled by Paul Pogba.
The new jersey will be worn by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad for the first time on Saturday, as United kick off their pre-season tour of Australia with a clash against Perth Glory.
Pogba modelled the new gold kit despite ongoing speculation over his future at Old Trafford, with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane thought to be keen on luring his fellow countryman to Santiago Bernabeu – as per the Daily Mirror.
However, the Red Devils have no plans to sell a prized asset and making him the frontman of their latest marketing campaign is a strong move which re-iterates their stance ahead of the 2019-20 season.
Unfortunately, some fans are unimpressed with the animal print design of the new gold away kit, with one supporter taking to Twitter to label the shirt ‘truly disgusting’.

United’s new Adidas jersey includes a ‘fresh savannah-toned aesthetic and intricate patterned design’ inspired by the ‘many mosaics that colour the streets of Manchester’s creative district, the Northern Quarter’ – as the Evening Standard reports.
The Red Devils will line up in these shirts regularly next season, so supporters will have to get used to the flamboyant design, but their initial reactions are mixed on social media.
Check out Pogba and co. showing off the new strip below, along with some more comments from United fans.
