Manchester United’s home kit for the 2022/23 campaign has been leaked online and fans are loving the design.
The red shirt features a collar for the first time since the dreaded 2013/14 season under David Moyes, despite being inspired by classic 90s kits.
The collar is white, with red and black triangles. The inventive design hints at United’s famous color scheme.
United’s leaked shirt is similar to the one they wore between 1992 and 1994, when the Red Devils won the first two Premier League titles of the Sir Alex Ferguson era.
The design will make many United fans nostalgic, remembering the glory days of club icon Eric Cantona.
What do you think of Manchester United’s leaked kit? Let us know in the comments below!
The alleged new kit was leaked by football titles and United are yet to announce their official designs for the 2022/23 campaign.
The current Red Devils home shirt is still available for purchase on the club’s website.
United legend Cantona was famous for wearing his collar up, although the reason he did it isn’t as exciting as many would have imagined.
“It wasn’t a gimmick,” the Frenchman told journalist and United fanzine editor Andy Mitten in his 2009 book. Glory Glory!
“I put my shirt on. It was a cold day. The collar stayed up so I kept it like that. We won so it became a habit to play with my collar up.”
When asked if United players would wear their collar during the 2013/14 campaign, defender Rio Ferdinand said: “There is only one person who should wear his collar: Eric Cantona. And he retired.”
Cantona’s No7 shirt – which has also been worn by George Best and David Beckham – is often reserved for United’s talisman.
The outgoing holder of the famous shirt – Ronaldo – is arguably the greatest player to ever wear a United shirt, let alone No7.
The veteran striker has been tasked with restarting the team’s stuttering season, with United languishing in seventh place in the Premier League.
“Man Utd should win the league or be second or third,” Ronaldo said in a recent interview. “I don’t see any other position for Man Utd.
“In my heart, I don’t accept that our mentality is less than being in the top three of the Premier League, in my opinion. I think that in order to build good things, sometimes you have to destroy a few things.
“So why not – new year, new life and hopefully Manchester can be at the level the fans want. They deserve it.”
On winning, he added: “What I can say is that we can do better – all of us. Manchester belong to big things, so we have to change that.
“I don’t want to be here to be sixth, seventh or fifth. I’m here to try to win, to compete.
“I think we are competitive but we are not at our best yet. But we have a long way to go and I think if we change our minds we can achieve great things.”
