Adidas have unveiled the Manchester United away kit for the coming season ahead of Friday night's game against Aston Villa at Villa Park.
In a statement, the club said: "The new away kit takes inspiration from some of the classic away shirts from the club’s illustrious history, including the shirts worn by the legendary Busby teams of the 1960s.
"The new shirt features a classic v-neck cut collar and three-stripe design down the shoulder, as well as a graphic design on the hem of the shirt taken from the 1990 shirt famously worn by Ryan Giggs in his first full season. This design feature runs throughout each of the three shirts being launched this season.
"Taking design inspiration from iconic three-stripe United kits from the 1980s, adidas have revisited the archive by bringing both classic red and white kits back once more, taking familiar style features that were loved by the fans and combining them with the latest performance technologies to produce innovative, modern classics.
"The new-look shirts include the latest in adidas lightweight and breathable technologies to ensure the players take to the pitch with the most innovative kit design ever."
The is is the first away kit adidas have produced for United as part of their £750m deal with the club.
