The new 2021/22 Liverpool home shirt has been streamed online, while Nike is heading into its second year as the club’s kit makers.
The Reds spent months negotiating with Nike to try to align their kit business with some of the other big boys in the world, and their first collaboration brought back the color of the old school teal in an attempt to stand out. .
Well, it looks like the teal will take the back seat next year.
Always reliable Footy Headlines have taken pictures of what is said to be the Liverpool home kit, and the collared collar-shaped collar has been replaced with a simple round design but dark green on the back.
For those who love keywords, enjoy here. The dark green collar is accompanied by “fossil green-dark-bright red” details … whatever that is.
As for the rest of the shirt, it’s a simple design. The famous red remains, but with diagonal lines, zigzagging on the chest, in a lighter shade.
An additional, brighter shade of red is brought for the cuffs, with the Nike and Standard Chartered logos standing out in a light gray.
BUZZWORD ALERT: Official coloring? “Gymnastic red / bright red / fossil”. Basically, it’s red.
There are no pictures of shorts or socks, but both will be red / fossil color combinations that can be seen over the shirt.
Nike will be eager to prove that they are not actually cursed next season. Their debut campaign with Liverpool was largely disastrous, with injuries and poor form, paralyzing Jurgen Klopp’s men and ending their defense in the Premier League title, just before it really started.
By the time this kit hits the field, Liverpool will be hoping to have people like Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez at their disposal, which should hopefully get things back on track.
