That’s because the jersey is very smooth, opting for a round neckline in a bright red color. Contrasting with ufabet club crest , brand sponsor on chest , left sleeve and white ‘ SWU ‘ crest .
The only commendable change will be the contemporary redesign ‘YNWA’ lettering , 97 on the back of the neckline alongside the flames, signifying the death toll from the Hillsborough disaster, rising from 96. And a new number and letter font design on the back of the shirt.
The inspiration for the design was drawn from the Scouser’s life-bearing attitude, the boldness, the no-nonsense design. That convey the serious local mentality and gave Liverpool a unique identity.
” We are all proud to wear the Liverpool shirt and be part of the ‘SWU ‘ family , ” midfielder captain Jordan Henderson said to the sponsors.
“ We immediately knew how much this jersey meant to the fans. Can’t wait to wear it on the pitch at Anfield. ”
