The new home shirt, available to order immediately from the adidas store and in shops from August 11, looks to encapsulate the DNA of the club - something manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has repeatedly focused on since taking charge in December 2018.

FourFourTwo was launched in 1994 on the back of a World Cup that England hadn’t even qualified for. It was an act of madness… but it somehow worked out. Our mission is to offer our intelligent, international audience access to the game’s biggest names, insightful analysis... and a bit of a giggle. We unashamedly love this game and we hope that our coverage reflects that.
