Inspired by greatness

United players have their say on the new third kit for 2008/09, designed to celebrate 40 years since the Reds wore blue in becoming the first English team to win the European Cup.

"This club has a great history. We respect the legends and it's great for us to put a shirt on that remembers a great team. I think it's beautiful."

- Cristiano Ronaldo

"I'm very impressed. It's great to have a kit to celebrate 40 years since that amazing night. For it to look so good and be the same colour as the kit from 1968 is a testimony to the designers."

- Ryan Giggs

New blue kit for 08/09

"Obviously they won the European Cup in blue so we hope we can walk in their shoes again with this kit. It's such a big part of the history of the club."

Wayne Rooney added: "It’s a nice kit. It’s been designed to celebrate 40 years since the European Cup win so it’s great to have a kit that remembers that team.

"When you come to a club like United, the history of the club is something that is important for new players to understand. It’s different to go out in blue but it’s all part of the club’s history and I think that’s important."
