Liverpool have released their new home kit for the 2019/20 season.
With a design to celebrate 100 years of one of the Reds’ and English footballs most successful managers – Bob Paisley OBE – the strip sees the return of pinstripes to the Reds’ home shirt.
Paisley enjoyed considerable success at Liverpool; in the 1970s and 80s, capturing six league crowns and three European Cups.
During that era, Liverpool took to donning a pinstriped number and will be reverting back to that style after embracing an iconic design from suppliers New Balance.
General Manager of New Balance Football, Kenny McCallum has said: “We’re extremely excited and proud to reveal the New Balance Liverpool FC Home Kit.
“Bob Paisley’s incredible legacy was the ultimate inspiration for the 2019/20 strip in what would have been his 100th year.
“We hope this design will bring success to the club as it did when Paisley was manager.”
Liverpool will be hoping to compete for more major honours when gracing their new kit in Premier League, Champions League and domestic cup outings next season.
Talismanic defender Virgil van Dijk has said of the design: “This year’s home kit is incredibly strong.
“I’m really looking forward to wearing it as we continue to build upon the club’s illustrious history and this season’s success.”
Liverpool have said on the club’s official website: “Revealed as part of the launch of the Reds’ New Balance home kit for the next campaign on Thursday morning, the goalkeeper is set to switch from his current No. 13 to No.1 at the beginning of 2019-20.
“Alisson inherits the iconic number from fellow stopper Loris Karius, who is currently on a two-year loan with Besiktas.
“The 2019-20 Liverpool home goalkeeper strip comes in black with striking gold detail and has been designed in line with the outfield players’ jerseys for next season.”
Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firminho and Van Dijk were on the scoresheet as Wednesday’s 4-1 win in Porto secured a last-four meeting between the Premier League leaders and Barcelona.
