Manchester United have revealed their new third kit for the upcoming season which has been designed a fan.

However, the new gray strip bears a remarkable similarity to the infamous gray kit from the 1995-1996 season, that was voted as the club’s worst ever kit in a fans’ poll in the Manchester Evening News.

The strip has gone down in Premier League folklore after Sir Alex Ferguson famously ordered his players to change out of the gray number after they came in 3-0 down away to Southampton in April 1996.

The Creator Studio platform allowed fans the opportunity to design the third kits for United and five other clubs – Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus, AC Milan and Flamengo.
