Man Utd fans concerned about 'Liverpool vibes' as Red Devils release ‘weird’ third kit with new look badge | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED fans have voiced their concerns about the 'Liverpool vibes' of their new third kit.
The third shirt offers an off-white main colourway with a dark red used on the collar, crest and sponsors.
It also features a minimalist take on the United badge.
While the shirt was generally well received, some on Twitter feel it is too similar to Liverpool kits of old.
A United Twitter account posted the new shirt and asked fans to rate the kit out of ten.
One United fan replied: "One.. Liverpool vibes."

Another wrote: "Feels like we've literally just copied one of the past season Liverpool kits but made it a little different?"
And a third conflicted fan tweeted: "I'm not really sure about this one, I don't like it but I'd very much get it. It just feels weird."
Liverpool have had at least one white away or third kit every year since 2019 and had a similar off-white away shirt during the 2021-22 season.
United said in a press release that the shirt is inspired by the "1909 Cup jersey and street style trends".

It was unveiled with a video that featured a giant version of Casemiro hovering over Old Trafford and Roy Keane leering at a silver platter of prawn sandwiches.
The third shirt has been generally well received despite the Liverpool concerns with one fan tweeting: "This jersey is the best Man U has revealed in a long time."
Another wrote: "Brother, this kit is an 11/10"
While a third added: "Best 2nd or 3rd kit in a long long time"
The third shirt is a more conservative effort compared to United's away shirt this season.
The club's green white and red striped shirt was branded "atrocious" by some sections of the United faithful on its release.
Whether it will go on to become a cult classic remains to be seen.
