Manchester United women's footballers hit out at Adidas after spelling player's name wrong on kit announcement

Manchester United’s women’s team is in a poor state at the moment.

After more than two months without a manager,  The Athletic reported last week the players were set to appeal for the PFA for help.

Several players have departed and Sky reported this week that star player Lauren James is being sold to Chelsea for £200,000.

With morale low, it was not a good look then for kit manufacturers Adidas to get one of the players’ names wrong.

Millie Turner’s picture was published with the name Amy Turner.

While Adidas corrected the error, Turner hit out on social media and received support from teammates.

Jess Sigworth, who left United at the end of June, also hit out and said it was a sad indictment of the women’s game.

United’s women’s teams season starts in September and time is running out for the club to get organised.

The Mail had reported that Casey Stoney quit as manager in May after becoming frustrated with poor facilities at the club and a lack of communication from the top.

Now for one of the players to have their name spelt wrong by the sponsors only furthers frustration over a lack of equality, that not enough care is being put into the women’s side of the game.

The players are in no mood to laugh this one off.
