Manchester United launched their new away kit earlier today – but it’s fair to say the new pink alternative strip couldn’t have dropped at a worse time.
In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard, United are in something of a crisis at the moment after last night’s humbling 3-0 defeat at the hands of Spurs at Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho’s men only managing to claim three points from a possible nine so far.
The Portuguese coach’s future continues to be debated in the tabloids today but meanwhile at Old Trafford it seems to be business as usual – for the money men, at least.
United’s new pink jersey is a nod to the old Football Pink newspaper – and regardless of what you think of the design, it really hasn’t gone down too well with supporters:
Amazing but fix up on results please regardless of the way we play

Was gonna purchase it but then I realised I would be funding the Glazers, off to DHgate for myself 👍

What do you think of the shirt? And what do you think of the strong reaction from supporters?
