The Devils’ in Black
When you’re a club as well followed as Manchester United, you know you have to deliver on a lot of fronts. Delivering trophies, keeping the shareholders and sponsors happy and of course brandishing a stylish club jersey for the adoring supporters to wear.
United have usually held themselves up to a good account in terms of their fashion sensibilities – though they also did infamously change their strip during half-time after Sir Alex Ferguson deemed that their inability to stop Southampton from taking a three goal lead into the break was due to their grey change strip.
It appears that United have chosen to go with a dark shade for next season again – but this time in a stylish jet black. The design bears a resemblance to the cult favourite blue and white away shirt worn by the Red Devils between 1990 and 1992, so there seems to be some hint of nostalgia about their choice this time around.
While United fans on social media have taken to the new jersey with great enthusiasm, they will be hoping that they can see their heroes show-off the design in the Champions’ League next season – something which Jose Mourinho and his injury-saddled charges are still attempting to ensure.
