Liverpool fans divided over new home kit

There has been a mixed reaction from Liverpool fans about the club’s new home kit.

The Merseyside outfit unveiled the new strip for the 2017-18 season, commemorating the club’s 125th anniversary.

For next season only, the new crest on the shirt will include the dates 1892 and 2017, as well as ‘125 Years’ below a gold Liver bird, which sits atop the letters ‘L.F.C.’

The New Balance-manufactured shirt is traditional red with white collar and trim and displays the club’s sponsor Standard Chartered on the front.

The crest has not been drastically altered, with the dates the only notable additions, but the main difference in the shirt itself is the collar.

The club tweeted images of Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino wearing the kit, while Simon Mignolet modelled the new green goalkeeper strip.

Liverpool celebrate turning 125 years old on June 3 this year, and while some fans are delighted with the new design, others would have preferred a different crest.
