Liverpool will wear a new home kit next season after the Premier League leaders revealed their new look on Thursday evening.
Unsurprisingly, the club have opted for red – as they have done ever since 1896 after dressing in blue for the first four years of their existence. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, though, will be forced to stand between the sticks dressed in a purple jersey.
Philippe Coutinho, Jordan Henderson, Simon Mignolet and Kolo Touré were all present at the unveiling of the kit at an event in Liverpool city centre that was simultaneously broadcast on their website.
Steven Gerrard, the club capatin, described the kit as “classic”.
“I have a great sense of pride every time I pull on a Liverpool shirt,” Gerrard said. “This shirt feels like a Liverpool classic and helps me remember the greats who played before us.”
