Manchester City have unveiled their brand-new home kit for next season but the latest jersey really hasn’t gone down well with the club’s loyal fanbase.
The newly-crowned Premier League champions revealed their new strip on their official website this morning after weeks of teasing leaked images on social media, and Pep Guardiola’s men will even wear it in tonight’s final home match of the season against Brighton.

City currently have their kits manufactured by Nike, but are due to switch over to a multi-million pound deal with Puma from the start of the 2019/2020 season, and it looks like the folk at Nike have perhaps lost enthusiasm slightly.
The 2018/19 uniform is an awful lot like this season’s effort, except it features a rather peculiar button-up collar – and to say supporters aren’t happy would be an understatement:
The button makes me 🤢

£64 for what in effect is the 16/17 shirt with an added button. Do that yourself.
