Man City’s New Away Kit Pays Homage to the Club’s Less Glamorous Paul Dickov Era

Man City’s New Away Kit Pays Homage to the Club’s Less Glamorous Paul Dickov Era

Manchester City have released their brand new away kit ahead of the Premier League season, and as Pep Guardiola‘s star-studded squad aim for domestic and European glory, manufacturers Nike have paid homage to one of the club’s less glamorous eras.

It feels as though one of the Prem’s big boys are dropping new kits pretty much every day at the moment, and it’s it’s nice to see Man City come up with a jersey with a little bit of history behind it.

The sleek dark blue design takes inspiration from the away shirt from the 1998/99 campaign, which the Citizens memorably wore when they managed to conquer the mighty Gillingham in the Division Two play-off final at Wembley, which ensured the club an immediate return to Division One.

The fresh design has slightly altered the order of the colours, bringing the design more into the modern era with three clean and thin stripes down the centre of the jersey, and two more under the arms.

Personally, we think City supporters will love the new shirt – but what do you think?
