Cape Town - Premier League giants Manchester United, alongside German sportswear manufacturer adidas, have revealed the new home kit for the 2019/20 season.
The classic design pays homage to the incredible 1998/1999 season in which United made history by becoming the first team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in one season. Twenty years on, it remains a unique achievement - unmatched by any other English club.
The iconic treble was clinched following an epic Champions League final, in which United battled back from 1-0 down to defeat Bayern Munich 2-1 in Barcelona, with injury-time strikes from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The new shirt acknowledges the minutes in which those historic goals were scored with 90+1 and 90+3 printed on the sleeves. The dates of the FA Cup final win over Newcastle United and decisive Premier League match against Tottenham Hotspur are also displayed, along the bottom of the shirt.
Meanwhile, the home goalkeeper jersey has a tiger pattern featuring a dark purple two-tone design, inspired by the top worn by our legendary No 1, Peter Schmeichel, during the 1998/99 season.
