Have you ever wondered what the Manchester United players really think about their kits?

We caught up with some of our men's first-team players recently at a club photoshoot to see what they thought about the new 2022/23 home shirt from adidas.

Diogo Dalot was our first interviewee, and when we asked him for his verdict on the kit, his response was: “It looks nice, brings back some vintage memories. I think it will bring some luck, the collar is back, so it looks nice.”

Suits you, Diogo!
We bumped into Anthony Elanga next and sought his opinion. He said: “The collar has Eric Cantona vibes!”

As for whether he’d celebrate a goal by using that fashion feature, of course he came back with “Collar up!"
Looking good, Anthony!

Next we caught up with our Brazilian midfielder, Fred, who said: “The kit is so good, very beautiful.”

He explained that he’d keep his collar down, that he was a fan of the club crest in particular, and that he felt good wearing it. 

Alongside Fred was his fellow countryman, Alex Telles. “It looks cool with the collar up, more style, you know? But I think during the game I’ll be going collar down, it’s better that way.”

Our young Tunisian midfielder, Hannibal, is a huge fan of our new home kit, explaining: “It reminds me of the old times, and Eric Cantona.”

Speaking of King Eric, we asked Hannibal if he’d be wearing his collar up at any point. His response was to demonstrate how he'd style it, as a nod to the French icon. So up, of course.

Luke Shaw had nothing but love for the home shirt, too. “Honestly, I’m really impressed with the home kit.

“There’s something different about this one, I think the collar adds a bit more.”

We asked Luke how he'd be utilising the collar. “I think a few players could perhaps leave it up but we’ll have to wait and see about that one!” 
The 2022/23 home shirt is available to purchase now from United Direct.
