MANCHESTER UNITED fans cheered for the club as pictures of their garish new third kit emerged just hours after the humiliating defeat by Brighton.
The Red Devils were left red-faced after the crushing blow to start the new Premier League season.
Erik ten Hag’s side were wiped out by two goals from Pascal Gross in the first half at Old Trafford on Sunday.
A faint Alexis MacAllister own goal gave United a lifeline but they were unable to find the equalizer as much of the previous season’s optimism had evaporated in the Manchester sunshine.
Then, to make matters worse, the club’s shocking canary green third kit was shared on social media on Monday morning.
Although the kit has not yet been officially released by United, the green number was leaked earlier this year.
And now pictures of Hannibal Mejbri and Euro 2022 hero Alessia Russo modeling the kit can be seen on Instagram.
The shirt has a crew-neck collar and darker green lines running diagonally across the shirt, with the club crest on a shelf background.
But the Stretford Paddock Instagram post sparked some hilarious reactions from supporters when someone dubbed it a “wannabe Norwich” kit.
One said: “Same color as Ten Hag’s face after the first 45 minutes of the season opener.”

Another wrote: “The new Manchester United third kit is as abhorrent as the team’s performance.”
A third added: “How about they sign some new players to wear it.”
And a fourth user commented, “Even adidas is Glazers Out 🔰” referring to the original Newton Heath colors of gold and green, which are now synonymous with protests against the unpopular owners.
New United boss Ten Hag wasn’t happy with what he saw at Old Trafford – and drowned out his worries by going to an Italian at a posh restaurant in Hale.
The Dutchman admitted: “It’s a damn awesome job.
“It’s definitely a setback. It’s a real disappointment and we have to deal with it.
“I’m not entirely satisfied because we’re losing and it’s not necessary. We should have done things better.
“We gave away two easy balls and the organization was a big mistake. We have made it clear how to deal with situations. It was unnecessary.
“We have to learn the lessons and learn from them quickly. We don’t have time and have to deliver.”
