Liverpool have unveiled their new away kit for the 2022-23 season and its “dizzying” design has split opinion amongst supporters.

The kit, which has been designed by Nike, features an iridescent, multi-coloured marble pattern on the front of the shirt.

The back has been left white to emphasise the wearer’s name and number, while the shirt is finished off with black detailing.

The kit, which is made from recycled plastic bottles, also features the 97 emblem at the nape of the neck in memory of those that lost their lives at Hillsborough.

Announcing the release of the kit, Liverpool say its design is “inspired by the city’s vibrant music scene and in particular the pioneering role it played in the ’90s dance music scene”.

But Liverpool supporters are split over the unique design, with some less than impressed with Nike’s latest effort.

“This actually hurts to look at,” wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: “Even worse than the yellow kit last year.”

“Bring back New Balance,” joked another supporter.

However, others were more supportive of the new kit, which will be available to buy from August 19.

“Absolutely Stunning, this will be going in My collection, I don’t understand why people are trashing it, Definitely getting it and flexing this beauty,” wrote one fan.

Another added: “This kit is brilliant idk what everyone is on about.” 

Liverpool will wear the kit for the first time on Tuesday when they take on rivals Manchester United in their opening pre-season friendly in Bangkok, Thailand.

“It’s not often we get to wear a jersey on the day of the reveal, so it will be a special moment for the squad to show off the new design in our first pre-season fixture,” said Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
