Fans have taken to Twitter to express their opinion over the new Manchester United shirt for women by sportswear giants Adidas.
The shirt seemed to appeal to male fans, but raised concerns among some women, who hit out at Adidas for designing it with a plunging neckline.
Some fans touted the new kit as ‘sexist’ and ‘discriminatory.’
Funny thing about this new Manchester United women's kit is that women here will be buying the men's kit— Arsal (@NaqliStark) August 1, 2015
Man United revealed its first Adidas kit in 23 years earlier this week for the upcoming Premier League season. Before that, Man United have worn Nike kits ever since they shifted from Umbro in 2002.
Some fans said they preferred the Nike kits.
Other male fans hailed the new kit, which the club called a “classic design,” the BBC reported.
“Everyone at Manchester United is very proud of the shirt, which draws upon the club's iconic kits of yesteryear,” United group managing director Richard Arnold told the BBC.
