Football clubs tend to use third kits to experiment on colours and designs.
And one club that has done that in the past few years is Manchester City.
The Citizens’ third kit for the 2019/20 season raised a few eyebrows when it was announced.
The yellow and pink pattern is certainly unique but is one that went down very badly with fans.
Supporters of the club would no doubt have been looking forward to next season where they wouldn’t have to wear the kit any more.
However, City fans may just hate next season’s third kit even more.
That’s because their third kit for the 2020/21 has been leaked by the ever-reliable Footy Headlines.
And it’s absolutely horrible. Brace yourselves, City fans. You can view the club’s third kit for next season below…
Puma created a disgusting third kit for Man City to use in the 19/20 season. They’ve somehow managed to create one even worse.
Top marks for creativity, we’ve never seen a kit anything like it.
Puma have said about the kit: “Manchester’s music scene has always been an influence on other bands worldwide.
“The iconic TV program “Top of the Pops” was run by the BBC, from 1964 – 2006, originally recorded in the city itself. The Man City 20-21 third kit takes inspiration from the Paisley floral pattern which was intrinsically associated to the “Brit Pop” music scene of the 1960s and 1990s.”
So the kit has some meaning, but we’re afraid to say it’s still hideous.
Unsurprisingly, the jersey has not received much love on Twitter with many City fans expressing their dismay.

Thought the home one was bad but this is an absolute piss take. Puma bang on course to be our worst kit maker ever. They may have succeeded already.

The kit is not going to sell very well when it’s released, that’s for sure.
