The trend for third kits to be used in European away games and Liverpool could be using this kit away from Anfield. Away from bright lights might also be a good idea.
Liverpool 2017-18 Third Kit Leaked
This is the purported third kit Liverpool will be wearing next season:
New Balance will no doubt come up with a dubious term to describe it. ‘Citrus’, ‘Blood Orange’; they seem too dull for such a lurid design.
Black trim and accents barely break the colourscheme more likely to be seen in a goalkeeper’s kit. The small v-shape at the bottom of the collar creates a faux neckline while the collar features a ‘citrus’ band amid the black.
It’s also a hint that the shorts may be black. For decency’s sake, I hope they are, along with the socks although that, in my mind’s eye, looks less appealing than citrus socks.
Not that either colour improves the overall look. Maybe this is a wind-up, a forgery based on a concept kit? Sadly, that’s not thought to be the case.
The formal release of the kit is expected in July.
