Manchester United's shirt for the 2022/23 season has finally been revealed, although it'll set fans back £100 if they want the authentic version.

United are the last 'big' six' team to officially reveal their strip, although instant reaction from the fans tends to suggest that it wasn't worth the wait. There's always controversy surrounding the new kits, with so many differing opinions on the change in style and features.

The new shirt is a rather bold change, with United opting for a more retro approach this season, perhaps in an attempt to manifest their earlier form. But fans don't seem too impressed with the strip, with one supporting even saying that it's "jarring" to look at.

As the kit was revealed to the United fans, it came under serious scrutiny, with the addition of a collar being the main scapegoat for criticism. One fan said: "Not a fan of the collar. Looks jarring."

Another gave their views, as they added: "Get rid of the collar and that ugly frame around the badge, then this kit looks great." The collar received more criticism, as one fan said: "For some reason the collar makes me think it's another shirt under the jersey and only collar showing. Looks out of place but I guess I'll get used to it."

One fan used the launch of the home kit to help make their decision about what shirt they would be buying, as they said: "It’s a no from me, the away looks much better. Black stripes is such a stupid choice."

However, as always, there were some contrasting opinions as some fans seemed to like the new shirt. "Everyone else is wrong," one fan argued. "This is a sick kit. People hated on the black and white one as well which was also sick."

Another added: "Another year where I like the jersey everyone hates. Do I have bad fashion sense? No, it's everyone else who is wrong."

The authentic kit will set you back £100 this season, with the normal shirt costing £70 before any alterations are made. The authentic jersey is constructed entirely from Primegreen, which means it is made purely from recycled materials. Alongside the innovative Primegreen engineering, the jersey features HEAT.RDY technology, keeping the wearer cool, dry and confident.

The collar may have taken some stick, but kit designer Inigo Turner explained the inclusion: "The polo collar is synonymous with Manchester United. Turned up or folded down, it has played a starring role in many of the club’s biggest moments.

"With such a rich history, we wanted to pay homage to some of the club’s most legendary kits and players, whilst capturing the essence of home brought into the present day with a new perspective on the strong visual identity and patterns that run through the DNA of the club."

The new United home shirt will be worn for the very first time on the pitch when Erik ten Hag's side play against Liverpool in Bangkok on Tuesday 12 July. However, it's unlikely that Cristiano Ronaldo will be there.
