Like Chelsea did earlier this week, Manchester United have gone left-field with this Zebra inspired third kit.
Here is more information from Man United’s website about the kit designed by adidas:
“Adidas and Manchester United today present the new 2020/21 season third kit, introducing a visually distinctive design, inspired by striped jerseys from the club’s history. From United’s first striped kit over 100 years ago, to the eye-catching designs of the 1970s and 80s, the latest release aims to provide a fresh update to tradition, while delivering a vibrant new print. To create this new design, adidas re-drew, hacked and re-imagined combined elements from various jerseys throughout the club’s long history to create a bold new pattern. Utilising United’s iconic club colours of red, white and black, the kit is an original story with a modern update.
“The result is surprising, unexpected and demonstrates a continued ambition to push the boundaries of shirt design. The release of the new third shirt follows the launches of the new home kit, which celebrates the club’s DNA with an imprint of “MANCHESTER UNITED” running through the shirt, and an away jersey which pays homage to the club’s famous travelling away support.”

The reaction from fans online is mixed and we all know that social media can be a tough place with regards to kit launches, especially one that pushed the boundaries like this.
It’s safe to say that Man United’s new kit will keep them steady in our Premier League kit rankings for the 2020-21 season.
Thanks for the seal of approval, Becks — we'll take it from here 👀
