Adidas have reportedly solved Manchester United’s kit issues which prompted some players to wear replica shirts during the early stages of the season. Several stars were reportedly left unhappy with how tight their kit fitted and complaints were lodged to the manufacturer.
The Red Devils have endured a shaky start to the campaign, winning 12 of their opening 23 matches of the campaign. Pressure has mounted on the shoulders of Erik ten Hag as a result, though the club’s struggles haven’t only been performance-related.
Earlier this season it was claimed that United stars were left unhappy with elements of their kits this season, specifically their home socks. The matter had been discussed between players and deemed a significant issue, prompting players to decide to wear replica versions since the second game of the season.
United summer signing Andre Onana was also left unhappy with his goalkeeping strip, with the Cameroon international feeling that his shirt was too tight. The goalkeeper also opted to wear a replica version as a result, though amendments have now been made.
According to the Daily Mail, adidas have made ‘light amendments’ to their kits and now their official player-issued strips. The matter was expected to be resolved by December but the issues took longer to amend than initially anticipated, with the changes only recently coming into effect.
An adidas spokesperson said: “United wore an updated design of the home sock. This has the same material and quality they have worn throughout the season, as with all club-issued socks.”
