Manchester United have released their new floral-inspired third kit for the new season which celebrates the club’s first-ever FA Cup triumph 110 years ago.

The black strip, which has a subtle rose print masked in grey, has taken the club back to it’s roots as they paid homage to their 1-0 win over Bristol City in 1909, which saw them lift the famous trophy for the first time.

United adopted the Lancashire red rose as their crest for the club’s historic final in south London as Sandy Turnbull scored the game’s only goal in front of 71,401 supporters.

The minimalistic kit also features a short inscription at the base of the shirt which reads, ‘110 Years – Manchester Rose – 1909-2019’.

United’s ‘solar red’ badge stands out on the dark strip as the adidas logo adopts the same colour scheme.

Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay and Luke Shaw were among a handful of first-team players that modelled the kit following it’s release on Friday.

Paul Pogba was also featured promoting the kit as he looks set to stay at United for another season.

Real Madrid have been linked with the Frenchman all summer but the Red Devils have stood firm on their valuation of the World Cup-winning midfielder.

While the Premier League’s transfer window closed last week, European clubs are still able to sign players until September 2.
