Liverpool fans react to Nike announcement

After what has seemed like months of speculation, Liverpool and Nike have finally confirmed their new multi-year partnership, which will see the US-based firm supply the Reds with their playing kit.

The Anfield outfit have had their playing apparel made by New Balance since 2012, but this new deal with Nike from the start of the next campaign will see them earn considerably more than the £40m they received per year with their previous contract. In fact, they could rake in up to £70m every 12 months.

The announcement has, unsurprisingly, received plenty of interest from supporters on social media platform Twitter. And plenty of fans are happy with the news.

Nike are one of the biggest global brands in world sportswear. It is little surprise that some supporters are delighted that their logo will now adorn their kit.

Some are specifically ecstatic that this will mean no more New Balance-made kits.

Considering that their soon-to-be former kit supplier stayed with the European champions during the harder times at the start of the previous decade, perhaps fans should be more grateful.

The big fat Liverpool quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Anfield?

In January 2019, by how many centimetres were Liverpool denied scoring a goal against Manchester City?

Others, meanwhile, are sure this can mean only one thing: the arrival of Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

Liverpool have been linked with the 2018 World Cup winner, and there is a feeling amongst some that this could now mean he completes a move to Anfield. Jurgen Klopp, though, has previously said that such a deal will not happen.

Not everyone is delighted with the new partnership though.

You can’t keep everyone happy, we suppose.

Who would you rather sponsor Liverpool's kit?
