Spurs have released their new home kit – and a glance at social media suggests the club’s loyal supporters aren’t particularly enamoured with the new design.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side played in the club’s first-ever Nike strips last season, after an underwhelming few years working with Under Armour, with the North London club penning a deal with the American sportswear giants which is reportedly worth a sizeable £25 million per season – more than double the £10 million per campaign generated by Under Armour.

But whilst the club’s hierarchy are probably very happy with the Nike uniforms, the 2018/19 versions haven’t gone down well with fans, some of whom are pointing out that it looks like they’re wearing shorts right up their ribs.
Personally, we don’t think it’s too bad at all, but this lot seem far from happy:
Seriously? Looks like they have their shirts tucked in too high, like everyone’s grandad on holiday!

It looks good how it blends with the shorts but not on fans especially with beer guts.

What do you think of the new kits? Are they really that bad?
