Cristiano Ronaldo models new Manchester United third kit but fans not convinced by ‘solar slime’ design to be worn against Brentford

    Many are calling for a new-look Manchester United after their opening day defeat to Brighton.

    But be careful what you wish for.

    The Red Devils will look entirely different when they travel to Brentford on Saturday as a striking ‘solar slime’ third kit was unveiled on Friday.

    Cristiano Ronaldo was among the players to model the new lime green design despite ongoing speculation over the 37-year-old’s future.

    The superstar forward was not at the forefront of United’s kit launch – but featured midway through a gallery on the club’s website.

    More importantly, however, the new strip was not particularly well-received by supporters on social media.

    One fan labelled it an ‘atrocity’, while another described it as ‘vile’.

    While there will be a change of colour against Brentford, United fans will be more concerned about a transformative performance after the 2-1 loss at home to Brighton.

    Despite the arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag, the Red Devils picked up where they left off last season – and their recent away form does not provide any cause for optimism.

    United lost eight matches on the road last season and only claimed six victories.
