Fans savage Puma for after release of Ghana's new away shirt

‘Puma deserve to be sued for the state of the kits they produce’: Fans savage sportswear giant for ‘disrespect’ after release of Ghana’s new away shirt sparks furious reaction online

  • Fans rage at the unveiling over the new shirt with many saying they won’t buy it 
  • The shirt contains a yellow square in the centre containing the players’ number
  • Puma’s announcement on Monday morning was met with disgust by Ghana fans

Ghana fans have taken to social media to vent their disgust after pictures emerged of the new national team away jersey.

The Black Stars, captained by former Swansea and West Ham United player Andre Ayew have come in for criticism with many fans also pointing the finger to kit manufacturer Puma for the quirky design.

The jersey sports a centralised yellow square containing the colours of the country’s flag, a black star and the players’ number on a red backdrop.

Puma have released the new Ghana away shirt and the initial reaction has been negative 

The sleeves contain a Red, yellow and green trim with the puma logo on the arm.

Puma revealed the new design in a tweet on Monday morning that read: ‘Bold meets proud The 2022 @ghanafaofficial Away kit, out now.’

For most, the jersey has been heralded as a disaster with many insisting they will not be parting with their money to buy one.

Fans took to Twitter to display their disgust at the African country’s new Puma away shirt

Twitter user @kwasivypa said: ‘Your Ghana jerseys lately are not nice at all. These ones unless you dash them to people. Even fake replicas kraa we won’t buy.’

Another user @dirtycoffins tweeted: ‘Someone is at Puma calling themselves creative director after approving of this bull****.’

@GidzFBG wrote: ‘Liquidate your company.’

@MichaelparryGh gave a more detailed response writing: ‘Laziness meets non-priotization. The disrespect for Ghana national team from your end is too much. We’ve seen kits made for other national teams where creative shapes were placed infront. Kindly explain what that rectangle means to our national team.’ #PumamustrespectGhana

The shirt sleeves contains colours of the Ghanaian flag with a yellow puma logo above it 

@Kwaku_Kwakye87 added: ‘Sorry this red away kit is the worse of a Ghanaian National Team outfit I have seen in the last 2 decades. Terrible’

@Kamreezy_ tweeted: ‘Puma deserve to be sued for the state of the kits they produce.’

But one person took exception and praised Puma on their innovative approach.

Twitter user @smit112 replied: ‘Fair play to them for trying something different,’

The jersey is available to buy now but judging by the response on social media, sales could be a little slower than normal.
