Man Utd release new kit for 2018/19 season inspired by 1968 European Cup winners

Manchester United have released their new third kit and claim it is inspired by the glorious 1968 European Cup winners.
This year will be 50 years since Bobby Charlton, Brian Kidd and George Best helped beat Benfica 4-1 at Wembley and the new navy blue top “takes its cue from the royal blue kit worn by Sir Matt Busby’s men in their victory” the club explain.
The gold detailing on the adidas logo and club crest pays direct homage to the success, the club’s first triumph in Europe, which came a year after Celtic put British clubs on the map by beating Inter and five years after Spurs won the Cup Winners Cup to become the first British side to win a European trophy.
