The Red Devils unveiled their new kit on Tuesday morning to mixed reviews ahead of the start of their pre-season campaign in the United States.

United said the new kit was a reflection of the club's 140-year history. It was in 1892 when the club played their very first first-division English football before being renamed to "Manchester United" in 1902.

Adidas have chose to doff their cap by including a "train track" graphic on the new United shirt, which are the black bands you can see across the lower torso.

United have broken from their usual home kits by changing from white shorts to black shorts - and coupled with the black lines at the bottom of the shirt and on the shoulders - makes for an eye-catching look.

'This shirt from adidas pays homage to the year we were founded, and marks 140 years of footballing success.

The kit, worn by Paul Pogba, is inspired by the club's historical links with Newton Heath, and has a small train-track graphic intended as a tribute to the railway workers who formed United in 1878.

Again, adidas has shown how innovative they are with their designs - taking a moment from the past and reshaping it for supporters into a jersey which I am sure the fans will love'.

The kit also has a sponsor on the sleeve for the first time after the club signed a multi-million pound deal with USA brand Kohler.
