Twitter users unimpressed by new ‘mash up’ Manchester City kit
The homage shirt, a mix of nine recent styles, is to be option for players to wear during the warm-up.
Manchester City’s new limited-edition warm-up shirt has been described as “bizarre”, “ugly” and “a monstrosity”.
The reigning Premier League champions’ new top incorporates nine of the club’s favourite recent jerseys and will be an option for players to wear before Saturday’s league game at Fulham and the remaining fixtures this season.
“Manchester City and Nike have unveiled a new shirt that pays homage to some of City’s best loved kits over the past six years,” the club said.

“This limited-edition celebration jersey brings together nine fan favourites and blends them into a new design which will be available for fans to buy.
“Among the kits is the home shirt from City’s centurion season in 2017/18 in which they broke the Premier League record points tally, and the third shirt from their domestic double-winning campaign in 2013/14.”
But the reaction on social media was much less positive.

Not everyone hated it, though.
