Why Toni Kroos Won’t Be Thrilled with 24/25 Real Madrid Third Kit Leak

Why Toni Kroos Won’t Be Thrilled with 24/25 Real Madrid Third Kit Leak

It’s that time of the season, where kits leaks and reveals are in full flow. Over the last few days, we have gotten a look at the rumoured kits for next season of many top clubs such as Arsenal’s much debated home shirt. While nothing is made official this early, fans love this part of the buildup to the new season.

Hot off the press and the mill continuing to churn out kit leaks, it’s the third strip of Real Madrid up next for us. Dropped by ‘OpaLeak’ online on, the ‘Trefoil Third Shirt’, as it is called is making the rounds on social media.

The kit features an all-black primary color with black sleeve stripes as well. The labels are more off white in their design. Real Madrid’s kit manufacturer, Adidas has gone with the ‘Adidas Originals’ logo this time around, instead of the usual three stripes.

The club crest, the mighty Real badge also has an off white touch to it with the long time shirt sponsor ‘Fly Emirates’ having the same color coding as to the rest of the labels.

The kit also features a slight watermark inscription ‘RMCF’ all over the shirt with shiny effects on it. The inscription stands for the full name of the club, ‘Real Madrid Club de Futbol’. The same is embroidered on the back of the kit, which admittedly looks like a classy addition to the jersey.

So what is the verdict on the new kit? if the fans’ reaction is anything to go by, the judgement couldn’t be more mixed and confusing.

Some of the Madrid fans like it, a lot. Considering tIe all-black color, the black and white sleeve trimmings and even the off white labels, there is a lot to like about this kit. Not to mention, the classy staggered inscription on the back.

However, the kit is not without its demerits. The massive watermarked RMCF inscription and to add, shiny, has not been well received. A user online even hilariously pointed out how it makes the kits look like a perfume or an aftershave cover box.

Another important detail not to be missed is the fact that the shirt has a collar rather than a usual rounded neck design. And so if it remains until the official release, it’s fair to say Toni Kroos won’t be a big fan of that decision, as pointed out by a fan.

The kit seems to be a hit and a miss so far. While there are things definitely to be loved about, the cons are too glaring to be ignored. However, if history is to tell us anything, it’s that Real Madrid love a black kit among their collection. Whenever they don one during a season, they more often than not end up winning the Champions League that season. If you look more closely enough, they have one this season too.
