'Is this a joke': Some Man City fans are outraged by 'atrocity' of an announcement from club

Man City have this week unveiled their third kit to the world. And to say it’s caused controversy would be an understatement.

The club made the announcement on their official Twitter account revealing their third kit for the 2021/22 season. The extremely bold design from Puma does not even feature the Man City badge.

Indeed, multiple clubs around Europe will be wearing similar shirts. With Puma this week also announcing that sides like AC Milan, Marseille and Valencia will have the same minimalist design.

The German kit manufacturer have usually been creative with Man City. However, their approach to third shirts this season, which was also seen in the Euros for sides like Italy and Austria, has seemingly missed the mark.
