Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after their new kits for the 2019/20 season were revealed.
? IT'S HERE! ?
Our new 2019/20 @NBFootball home kit ?
— Liverpool FC (@LFC) April 18, 2019
The home strip, created by New Balance, showcases a classic red design with white sleeve cuffs and thin, white pinstripes down the middle, somewhat replicating the home shirt from the 1982 season.
Also, the goalkeeper strip is now a smart black, whilst first-choice stopper Alisson Becker has changed from the No.13 shirt to the No.1 jersey, previously worn by Loris Karius.
This looks set to be New Balance’s last year in partnership with the Merseysiders, as their current deal expires at the end of next season – Nike are said to be in advanced talks with the club over a record-breaking £750m agreement.
If the sportswear giants did manage to strike a deal, it would be the most lucrative in Premier League history.
For now, however, let’s take a look at how the Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the latest strip…
The goalkeeper shirt is a thing of beauty ?
