The adidas kit which will be worn next year includes a number of nods to United's Treble-winning 1999 season.

Stitched in black at the bottom of the shirt are the words: "Treble winners BCN_26.05.1999"

It also includes the minutes in which Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final at the Nou Camp on either sleeve.

United were at the height of their glory days in that season as they won the Premier League, FA Cup and European Cup.

They will wear the kit which celebrates their best achievement while competing in Europe's second-tier competition and trying to scrap back into the top four next season.

Having not won the Champions League since 2008 or the Prem since 2013, fans are worried the club are clinging on to their past achievements too much.

They have even compared themselves to their bitter rivals Liverpool, who they mock for their failure to win a league title since 1990.

Good to see that we're now firmly living in the past. https://t.co/ACULihRZCG

One supporter wrote: "F*** me. Why are we living in the past. We’re becoming the new Liverpool 😂."

Another said: "So we’re now like Liverpool, living in the past!"

And some eagle-eyed fans noticed a huge gaffe with the goalkeeper design – it is actually inspired by a kit from two years BEFORE their 1999 feat.

Adidas and United's marketing spiel claims the new purple and black goalkeeper uniform was inspired by the one Peter Schmeichel wore in the 1998-99 season.

Except the jersey worn by Schmeichel during that incredible season was actually GREEN.

However, many fans have fallen in love with the new design.
