Manchester United have released their new kit ahead of the 2019/2020 season with the design paying homage to their the treble winning team of 1999.
The new kit features a number of changes and is inspired by the 1998/1999 season in which United made history by becoming the first team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League in one season.
It is available to buy from today, Thursday, May 16th, and also features a new commemorative crest, which takes inspiration from the shield seen on the kits from the historic season 20 years ago.
United, of course, triumphed in the Champions League final in dramatic circumstances thanks to late goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The new shirt acknowledges the minutes in which the goals were scored with 90+1 and 90+3 printed on the sleeves.
The dates of the FA Cup final win over Newcastle United and decisive Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur are also displayed, along the bottom of the shirt.
Meanwhile, the home goalkeeper jersey has a tiger pattern featuring a dark purple two-tone design, inspired by the top worn by Peter Schmeichel.
United fans may be pleased with the sharp new kit design but the problems they have on the field will be far more of a concern for the Old Trafford faithful.
Paul Pogba is pictured in the kit but it is unknown as to whether or not he will even be at the club next season given his disappointing displays this season as well as the fans’ apparent indifference towards him.

United finished the season without a win in their last five games and after a promising early run, struggled for the most part under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It’s clear that investment in the squad is needed as well as a major clearout of some of the squad who are not good enough to play for Manchester United.
It will be intriguing to see who will be wearing United’s new kit next season and who won’t.
