Kits leaks and rumours for plenty of Europe’s top clubs have been out in the wild for quite some time now, including the ones for English Champions Manchester City.
Going by these reports, the Cityzens’ home will look to combine the traditional blue with an ‘intense red’ shade. As for the third kit, it will display a neon look featuring shades called ‘Fizzy Yellow’ and ‘Parisian Night’.
Luckily, fans got their first official look at the away kit for next season, which had been described to be black and red in colour.
Coming via these images, which were captured at what appears to be an official shoot conducted by the club. Created by Sportswear brand Puma, the shirt draws inspiration from City’s iconic 1969/70 season kit.
Incidentally, an iteration of the very same kit was created by Umbro, one of City’s previous sponsors, for the 2011/12 season
However, to differentiate the designs, Puma has gone for diagonal stripes instead of vertical ones. The sleeves go all black, and a standard V-neck collar is present. As for the sponsor’s logos, they are enveloped in a bright yellow shade, the club crest follows suit.
With the presence of black stripes and a red base, naturally, some fans likened it to AC Milan’s traditional home kits.
Aside from that, a major complaint from the fans was the inclusion of diagonal stripes.
Evidently, many were of the impression that the vertical ones would return, but they were left disappointed in the end.
