Photos: Cristiano Ronaldo features as United officially release new 2022/23 third kit

Manchester United have officially released their new third kit for the 2022/23 season.

It rounds off the collection of strips for United and features a luminous green design which United have never played in before.

The away kit is a more traditional colour scheme for United, white with red and black trim but Adidas have done something different with the third jersey.

There are geometric patterns in the collar and the design of the shirt itself and that may well divide opinion with the fans.

Manchester United release new third kit

As per United’s official website, Inigo Turner, Design Director at adidas said: “A convergence of cultural icons remixed and recoded, the 22/23 third kit takes its inspiration from the iconic Manchester United graphic identity, using geometric shapes and patterns.

“We’ve blended these with a new interpretation of a classic club colour for a fresh, eye-catching kit.”

Also on the club website is a slideshow of pictures of the players wearing the kit, including wantaway striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Portuguese superstar is photographed as well as the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford in the kit launch.

United will wear the new third kit tomorrow (Saturday) when they face Brentford in the first Premier League away match of the season.

Erik ten Hag is already under pressure to get a result there after the performance and result at home to Brighton on the opening weekend.

United have used their third kits in recent years to try something out there, with the zebra pattern of the 2020/21 still fresh in the memory.

One player we’re still also waiting to see in the new shirt is Frenkie de Jong. The negotiations to sign the Dutchman have dragged on throughout ten Hag’s first summer in the hotseat and show no signs of coming to a satisfactory conclusion any time soon.
