Adidas' Real Madrid 2019/20 Icon Retro Jersey Has Leaked Online

Real Madrid and Adidas are going big for the 2019/20 season after it has emerged that images of the club's retro shirt has surfaced online.

Footy Headlines reports that the sports manufacturer has a long-sleeve retro shirt planned for its Icon range, bringing the design to life using the same templates previously used for Arsenal and Manchester United.

According to the publication, the Icon shirt has 'white with gold-metallic logos, including a monochrome club badge on the left chest and midnight navy accents in the form of the collar and sleeve cuffs.'

Footy Headlines added that the gold lines are placed around the whole of the collar and that the three-stripe design of the shirt is 'inspired by Adidas kits from the late 1980s/early 1990s is visible on the body as well as the sleeves.'

So, what are the thoughts from Los Blancos fans on the shirt? Well, it's safe to say that many, many fans have put their full support behind the leaked shirt.

"Beautiful, I'm definitely getting one!" one user wrote on Reddit.

Someone else said: "The best jersey to come out this century."

A third wrote: "Next season can't come soon enough."

A fourth added: "Dope, put Teka in the middle and it's almost the '99/00 jersey."

Of course, not everybody is a fan of the design.

One Madrid fan wrote: "Different strokes for different folks, I suppose, but I'm surprised so many of y'all like this."

Another wrote a scathing comment: "Looks like s***e, IMO. The original didn't have gold stitching and they should have just done the black kit we wore in the 2000 CL final."

Adidas, which will only release the shirt as a long sleeve as it has done with others in its Icon range, plans for the jersey to be released this summer.


What's your verdict on the shirt? Yay or nay?
