Liverpool fans on Twitter are split after an image emerged showing what is said to be their kit for the 2018/19 season.

The picture, which shows the Reds’ strip to have white sleeve cuffs and thin white stripes running down the middle, appears to be a throwback to the 1983/84 shirt, of which the Merseysiders won the Champions League whilst wearing.
Are the media letting Jurgen Klopp off lightly for his lack of silverware? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
It was recently reported that the Premier League title challengers were in advanced talks with sportswear giants Nike over a record-breaking £750m deal, eclipsing rivals Manchester United’s £750m agreement with Adidas.
If Nike were to strike a deal with the Reds, it would be the largest in Premier League history.
Liverpool’s current deal with New Balance is set to expire at the end of next season, and is worth a reported £45m-a-year. However, they retain the right to match any rival offer and extend the partnership in doing so.
However, if that were to happen, it doesn’t appear that every Liverpool fan would be happy with it judging by the split reaction on Twitter over the alleged kit for next term…
You want us to compete for the title wearing that??

Still better than any nike kit. Lads, all nike kits look exactly the same, they have one template and just change the colours.

What in the world is that like seriously. Glad to share kits with others… Bring on the Nike

I like it very simplistic and the lines are something new which isn’t a bad thing at all
