Man Utd forced into unusual kit change for FA Cup final by rivals Man City

Man Utd forced into unusual kit change for FA Cup final by rivals Man City

Man United will have make a change to their kit for the FA Cup final against Man City on Saturday.

Manchester United have been forced into an unusual kit change for the FA Cup final against rivals City on Saturday.

The two sides play out a second consecutive all-Manchester final in a historic fixture at Wembley.

United, who are expected to sack Erik ten Hag irrespective of the result, reached the final after beating Coventry on penalties following a pulsating 3-3 draw in 120 minutes of action.

Premier League champions City squeezed past Chelsea with a 1-0 win in their semi-final and now the two sides will meet in the final for the second consecutive season.

They had never come up against one another in a final until last year, where City won 2-1 on their way to a historic treble.

Ilkay Gundogan scored a brace, including the fastest goal in FA Cup final history just 12 seconds in.

The same two teams have not locked horns in back-to-back cup finals since 1885, with Blackburn Rovers and Queen's Park squaring off.

But it's emerged that United will have to change their strip for the game. As per Samuel Luckhurst, the FA have confirmed that United will wear red shirts, black shorts and block socks.

Andre Onana will wear a yellow goalkeeper shirt, while City will wear sky blue shirts, white shorts and sky blue socks.

United had to do the same last year to avoid fears of a colour clash.

Before the game, there have been reports claiming that Erik ten Hag will be sacked irrespective of the result after a dismal domestic season which saw United finish eighth.

The circumstances mirror what happened in 2016, when Louis van Gaal was dismissed despite leading United to victory over Crystal Palace.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS have drawn up a five-man shortlist which includes Mauricio Pochettino, Thomas Tuchel, Kieran McKenna, Thomas Frank and Graham Potter.
