Adidas Rumoured To Be Launching Controversial Manchester United Green And Gold Kit

There are rumours circulating that Adidas will remake Manchester United's iconic green-and-gold away kit, according to a post by @UtdDistrict, via Stretty News.

The kit could be released this December in what many deem as a controversial move, with the colours being used by United fans to show their displeasure at the current Glazer regime in place at Old Trafford.

What is even more intriguing is that the shirt will not be worn by Manchester United's players, and only by fans purchasing the kits.

Green and gold were the colours worn by Newton Heath before the club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902.

The club also donned the colours in an iconic away shirt that Sir Alex Ferguson's side wore between 1992 and 1994, as United won their first two Premier League titles.

Fans' protests against the Glazers have grown louder in recent months after the Red Devils' bid to join a new European Super League, with huge amounts of debt currently in place on the club.

There is no set plan for the kit to be released, but it will be interesting to see if the situation develops.

But the colour of the kits is the least of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's concerns, following four defeats in United's last seven games across all competitions.

The Red Devils are already five points adrift of league leaders Chelsea after eight games, and exited the Carabao Cup following a 1-0 home defeat to West Ham United.

Their 4-2 defeat at Leicester City was the club's second loss of the season and ended their 29-match unbeaten run on the road.

It does not get any easier for Solskjaer's men either, with a Champions League clash against Atalanta coming up on Wednesday before Liverpool visit Old Trafford on Sunday. United end the month with a trip to face Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 30th October.
