Liverpool have unveiled their new home kit – their first since their switch to Nike.
The Premier League champions have swapped New Balance for the American sportswear giant in one of the biggest kit deals in world sport.
The all red design is made with a brighter colour to “exude youth and vibrancy” while the teal on the colour is a throwback to the iconic 1993 Adidas kits.
