A fresh look at the rumoured Liverpool home kit for next season has elicited plenty of reaction on social media, with many of the club’s fans unhappy about one aspect in particular.
Twitter channel @AnfieldEdition uploaded three close-up images of the proposed new shirt, which was first shared on Footy Headlines a few days ago, and one of those shows a slightly raised club crest that appears to be ironed on to the kit. That elicited complaints from some Reds supporters who are fearful that the quality of the overall shirt would diminish unless the crest is embroidered into the material, as it has been with recent kits.

The close-up images are the latest fresh take on the rumoured home kit, being published just days after a video detailing the shirt was shared on Twitter by @6startravel. While no official confirmation about new kits has yet been made, what is certain is that the finished designs will be made by Nike, who will take over from New Balance as the club’s kit supplier during the summer.
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to air their grievances about the appearance of the club crest on the rumoured kit:
Whoever at the club passed this stuck in badge to save a few quid needs their head looking at. Very cheap and not befitting

I swear if the rubber badge is on the replica it’s gonna come off after a few washes
