Liverpool have revealed their home shirt and kit for the 2014-15 season. The new strip is again made by Warrior.
The new shirt reveals a traditional red coloured design with a white trim on the sleeves, sides and shoulders of the shirt. The shorts and socks will also be red featuring white trim. A new geometric weave is added to this shirt which further enhances the striking appearance. The new shirt also carries two embroidered Eternal Flames alongside a 96 logo on the nape of the shirt’s neck.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said, “The 1960s was such a defining era for this club. Sir Roger Hunt, Ian St John, Ron Yeats …the list of Liverpool FC legends that played under Shankly goes on and on. For the players to wear a shirt that has taken inspiration from such a successful period for the club, can act as a reminder that they can bring those glory years back to Liverpool Football Club.”
General Manager of Warrior Football, Richard Wright said, “As in previous years, we’ve worked closely with the club throughout the design process of the new kit. It’s a great clean-cut, modern kit which has the club’s history at its core; an inherent quality across our LFC kit collection for the 2014/15 season.”
Current Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard said, “I have a great sense of pride every time I pull on a Liverpool shirt. This shirt feels like a Liverpool classic and helps me remember the greats, like Roger Hunt, who played before us.”
Early reaction seems to be largely positive. What do you think to the new kit?
