The latest offering from kit supplier Puma features a dark blue shirt, with the Puma logo central rather than to one side. Between the logo and the Sponsor (Etihad Airways), however, they have inserted the club name in light blue writing, while the shirt is also patterned with the Manchester City crest.
Safe to say, the controversial offering had tongues wagging across social media, with City and rival fans alike wasting no time making their opinions felt.

Manchester City’s new third kit looks like something you’d get for £3 in Sports Direct and Etihad Airways have been forced into sticking their sponsor on it.
Don’t think this one’s gonna go down well 😬#MCFC pic.twitter.com/nhXXm4hi9n

I say with a lot of confidence that this is the worst Premier League kit I’ve ever seen. https://t.co/xnBbeS5WGr

It’s a wind up?? Right??? There’s no Club Badge – It looks like a draft idea brainstorm effort. Doubt they’ll play in that.

I can’t wait for this to be in the clearance bin for 4.99 at the end of the season so I can still not buy it.

Safe to say, the new strip has not gone down well in Manchester.
