Manchester United have officially launched their 2013/2014 away kit that will be unveiled during the club’s visit to Osaka, Japan.
The gingham checks are a kick back to United’s 18th century industrial roots which was produced in Manchester and unlike the home kit, there is no Cantona inspired collar on the shirt.
When the checked away kit came in a couple of years ago, fans were aghast by it but it quickly grew on them. For me, last season’s white away kit was one of the best kits we have had in a few years and while this one isn’t as good, it always tends to look better on the team when they are playing.
