LIVERPOOL have unveiled their new Nike home kit for next season.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will be kitted out with bolted pinstripes and crimson sleeve cuffs along with a neckline inspired by their 1964 campaign under the legendary Bill Shankly.

That was the year that the club wore a full-flooded red kit for the very first time.
Shankly famously provided the reason behind the switch, saying: “Red is for danger and red is for power.”
According to Liverpool’s official website, the new red kit is ‘detailed with bolted pinstripes and bright crimson sleeve cuffs and neckline – representing power, energy and danger.’
And the jersey also has a nod to the 1990s as it is completed with a fossil-coloured swoosh and crest.
Finishing off the description, Liverpool wrote: “The green neck tape features a thread of stripes which are ever-present in the home collection.
“The final touch is the fresh new look from Standard Chartered Bank. Bold, vibrant and digital-friendly, the brand is fit for a new era.”
And it has certainly proven to be a hit with defender Virgil van Dijk.
The Dutchman, who should be back for 2020 Premier League champions for the big kick-off in August, said: “It’s great to see the perfect blend of our heritage and Nike’s product innovation for our new home kit.

“Being part of the swoosh family for years, they’ve been at the forefront of sustainable design and it goes a long way into making our sport a greener one.
“I can’t wait for the fans to see it in person next season.”
Both the shirts worn by players and those purchased by fans having been ‘constructed with 100 per cent recycled polyester fabric, which is made from recycled plastic bottles,’ according to the club.
Fans are able to pre-order the new kit and training on Liverpool’s website now.
And the both will go on general sale from Thursday 3 June.
