Juventus will definitely be catching the eye of home and away fans next season after their home kit for the 2019/20 campaign has apparently been leaked online.
Fans are all too familiar with the zebra-striped design on the Old Lady’s home kit, but that could all about to change if this new kit turns out to be true.
According to Footy Headlines, images of the kit have surfaced online and it has taken a major change in direction from the black and white stripes featured on the current kit.
One side of the top is white with a black sleeve, while the other side is black with a white sleeve.
However, the one thing that really, really does stand out is the pink stripe separating the two halves of the kit.
Yes, that’s right. It’s hard to miss how pink it is, especially for the width of the striped bar between the black and white of the kit.
Unsurprisingly, football fans are not blown away by the design and have expressed their thoughts on social media.
“Probably will look better on players in natural light, but I’m not entirely convinced as of now,” one Twitter user wrote.
Someone else said: “Not much creativity or imagination used. We’re Juventus, not Grimsby [Town].”
A third wrote: “My eyes are hurting [just] looking at this.”
A fourth added: “This is disgusting. Juve should always have stripes, not whatever this is.”
Juventus resume their campaign in Serie A on Saturday following the end of the international break, with Massimiliano Allegri’s men hosting Empoli at the Juventus Stadium.
The club confirmed on Tuesday that Cristiano Ronaldo had picked up a minor thigh injury in Portugal’s Euro 2020 qualifying match against Serbia.
“Cristiano Ronaldo underwent tests in Portugal that revealed a minor injury to his right thigh flexors,” reads the statement.
“He will be monitored and subjected to further tests to establish when he can return to competitive action.”
