Newcastle United are rumored to be on the cusp of an immense takeover at the hands of The Bin Zayed Group. The UAE based conglomerate is owned by Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nahyan (a distant relative of Sheikh Mansour, the owner of Manchester City).
A wave of changes and improvements are likely to occur at Newcastle United upon the completion of the takeover.
For starters, rumours suggest that Jose Mourinho is on the cards to replace Rafa Benitez as manager. What a statement would that be, not that there’s anything wrong with Rafa though, who has been awesome for the Magpies.
A number of big money signings are expected too with the Magpies hoping that the impact of the takeover is as big as Manchester City’s.
The Newcastle faithful are on cloud nine and everything looks good…..except their away kit for next season?
A leaked away kit has surfaced online and the fans surely don’t seem happy about it.
The kit features olive green as its primary colour along with a black design that resembles tire tracks.
It’s certainly not the worst kit we’ve ever seen but the fans clearly do not approve of it. They have spotted that the sponsor seems to be way low than usual and are hoping that it isn’t the final design or the kit at all!
However, the takeover and some big money signings would surely allow the fans to move past the away kit conundrum and back the boys for an exciting season to come!
Check out the kit below –
