Liverpool picked up a win between its Champions League defeat of Genk and weekend visit from Tottenham Hotspur, and a new look is headed for Anfield.

The Reds’ court battle against current uniform supplier New Balance has been won by the Premier League giant, who now has the green light to turn on its record deal with Nike.

New Balance had a clause in the contract to match any competitor’s offer at the expiration of the current deal.

The company announced a “strong belief” that they had properly matched Nike’s rich offer, but Liverpool contended that “New Balance could not match the American rival’s offer in relation to the marketing and distribution of Liverpool products.”
