The protracted wait is over for Liverpool faithful after the Merseyside club launched their highly anticipated new 125th anniversary kits on Thursday.
It’s claimed that the kit, which will be the Reds home shirt next season, takes inspiration from previous jerseys, including the 1984 European Cup-winning shirt, with New Balance responsible for the manufacturing.
The shirt was modelled by Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino as well as club captain Jordan Henderson and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
Liverpool supporters will be able to buy the new kit from May 19, and it’s widely expected that it will be a popular pick given its significance while the shirt itself looks pretty special especially with a new club crest as the Anfield giants celebrate their anniversary.
“There is a huge sense of pride that comes with wearing an LFC shirt and it is always an honour, but this kit is special,” England midfielder Henderson told Lfc.com.
“Our 125th anniversary is a great moment for us all to celebrate our heritage and this kit really reflects that, especially as it features the anniversary crest — we’ll wear it with pride.”
Liverpool face Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday in the Premier League.
