“Liverpool’s new title-winning kit” – Reds supporters react to 2016/17 home kit launch

Liverpool have officially unveiled their new home kit ahead of the 2016/17 season.

The new strip was modelled by Jordan Henderson, Philippe Coutinho, Simon Mignolet, Jon Flanagan and Connor Randall on Monday evening, at Pier Head on Liverpool’s waterfront in front of the iconic Liver building.

A sizeable crowd turned out for the launch, such is the ever-increasing popularity of modern football, with supporters keen to see what their heroes will be wearing next season.

In truth, it had been leaked weeks ago, but that seemingly made no difference to the hoards of people on show in Liverpool.

Robbie Fowler was on stage to warm up the crowd prior to the 7pm reveal, along with Jason McAteer. Bizarrely, the Reds legend was skipping in the build-up to the big reveal.

Spirits are high following the Reds’ qualification for the Europa League Final last Thursday, and the hope is that Henderson and Co. will lift trophies in the new attire next year.

Twitter gave its thoughts on the kit, with the reaction positive on the whole:
