The future at Liverpool is bright with Jurgen Klopp boasting a talented young squad.
And they have gone a step further to prove that by unleashing a brand new bright orange third kit.
The strip, made by New Balance, is reminiscent of a classic Holland international jersey – which could be used to lure Dutch top target Virgil van Dijk this transfer window.
The kit has black trim with a false collar to go alongside their sponsor Standard Chartered emblazoned across their chest.
To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames sits at the nape of the neck and it also has the special 125 year anniversary badge woven into it.
The look is completed with orange shorts and socks, which has a blank band at the top.
There is also a new goalkeeping kit for Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius – which is lime green.
Liverpool also released a retro shirt to mark the club’s 125th anniversary.
The shirt – a red one, unsurprisingly – will feature a retro design, complete with a special commutative badge that marks the dates 1892 and 2017 either side of the Liver bird badge.
The design features a darker shade of red than usual along with a 1980s-esque collar that harks back to their ‘Rome 1984’ kit and was worn for the first time at Anfield in the Reds final game of the season against Middlesbrough on May 21.
Also unveiled was the goalkeeper shirt, which is in the traditional green.
As part of the launch, Liverpool had several of their stars surprise fans with a special delivery of the new kit,
Reds skipper Jordan Henderson was on hand to discuss the anniversary kit.
“There is a huge sense of pride that comes with wearing an LFC shirt and it is always an honour, but this kit is special.
“Our 125th anniversary is a great moment for us all to celebrate our heritage and this kit really reflects that, especially as it features the anniversary crest – we’ll wear it with pride.’
Explaining their design, New Balance said: “The kit pays homage to the club’s 125 anniversary, introducing a special 125 anniversary crest. The Liver bird emblem is flanked with ‘1892’ and ‘2017’; a unique feature of the New Balance LFC kits for the new season.
The back of the shirt features a Hillsborough motif on the back
“The 2017/18 kit range takes inspiration from the iconic moments, figures and events that have featured throughout Liverpool FC’s illustrious 125 year history. The home kit has a darker red tone similar to the all red kit Bill Shankly introduced over fifty years ago.FC “Tonal pin stripes are engineered into the weave of the fabric of the kit, acknowledging the Liverpool FC teams of the early 80’s and a highly successful period in Liverpool FC’s history. The jersey features a debossed ‘125’ to the shoulder seam tape and is framed with a neck white tipped collar.LIVERPOOL FC PL
“To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, encased by the eternal flames sits at the nape of the neck.”
General Manager of New Balance Football, Richard Wright said: “This kit is a testament to the periods and events that have made Liverpool FC the club it is today. This year’s home kit is the perfect blend of heritage and modern technology, creating a look that is visually stunning and performs at the highest level.”
