Liverpool are celebrating their 125th anniversary this year and have so far released their home, away and third kits for the new season, all of which feature a commemorative crest.
However, to take things a step further, the Anfield outfit have now released a retro jersey, which harks back to the club’s very foundation in 1892.
A blue and white quartered jersey is recognised as one of the first kits to ever be used by the iconic club before the decision was made to wear red, the colour most associated with the north-west city.
In celebration of this special anniversary year the club have commissioned a gorgeous replica of the 19th century jersey.
Featuring a lighter shade of blue than the kit pictured above, the shirt is also quartered and features another commemorative crest.
According to Liverpool’s official website, the crest included in this edition is a representation of the 1892 badge found in early documents relating to the club.
Even though this jersey will never see time on the pitch, it is sure to be a huge hit amongst the fans.
The Reds have just three more friendly clashes to play before kicking off their Premier League season away to Watford on August 12 before their first home clash against Crystal Palace.
With new additions like Mohamed Salah, Andrew Robertson and Dominic Solanke still to bed into the team, it is difficult to tell as of yet what type of season Liverpool will have. However, under Jurgen Klopp there is certainly an air of optimism around Anfield going into this campaign.
While Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United have all again strengthened this summer, the Reds will be hopeful of making a title challenge, albeit with Champions League football to now contend with.
