“A bigger turnout than the unveiling of Erling Haaland”

Manchester United have unveiled their new away kit for the 2022/23 Premier League season in front of adoring fans in Australia.

The Red Devils have once again opted for a white change strip, which contrasts with their home shirt.

The club announced that they and adidas were inspired by the club’s “philosophy of youth, courage and success”.

Even the club’s crest is steeped in history with a black shield behind it, as it was in the 1998/99 season, as well as in 2007 and 2008.

Another nice touch is the black and red stripes on the shoulder which will be a hit with fans of the club.

Meanwhile, red and white symbols are on the black collar to bring out the Manchester United colors.

Inigo Turner, Design Director at adidas, said: “We approached this kit that the club will wear to opposing stadiums around the world with a fresh perspective, aiming to capture an unmistakable sense of collective belief and common purpose.

“Wherever the club goes, we wanted it to carry its philosophy of youth, courage and success, proudly woven into the fabric of the kit for players and fans to wear together.”

Australian fans could see Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw, Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho modeling the new shirt.

And they gathered in large numbers on Melbourne’s Federation Square.

talkSPORT presenter and Manchester United fan Mark Goldbridge also used the magnificent presence for a cheeky dig at Man City.

Their city rivals recently unveiled new signing Erling Haaland at the Eithad, but the crowd in Melbourne seemed bigger, which he was keen to point out.

He posted on Twitter: “United away kit reveal in Australia had bigger turnout than Haaland’s Etihad reveal

“Warra Trophy.”
