Puma unveils Man City’s new kit despite criticism from famous supporter that it should be sent back to Wuhan, China
LIAM GALLAGHER joked that the makers of Manchester City’s upcoming 2020/21 kit be sent to coronavirus hotspot Wuhan – before deleting the tweet.
The former Oasis rocker is well known for pulling off some iconic outfits over the years.
And the new kit isn’t a million miles from something his old Pretty Green fashion range might produce.
However the leaked City kits, featuring a fractured-style home shirt and paisley third kit, were deemed well below par.
Gallagher tweeted on Friday morning: “Who ever is responsible for that new Man City kit needs putting on the nxt flight to WUHAN and who ever buys it needs to be on the 1 after c’mon you should f****** know LG x”
Ironically, Puma were quoted in the leak as saying the designs were inspired by Manchester’s thriving BritPop music scene of the 1990s – from which Oasis emerged.
Soon after, the 47-year-old deleted the tweet with the Chinese city of Wuhan the epicentre of the global coronavirus pandemic.
He then wrote “ZEN AS F***” in a subsequent social media post, adding “Ha ha ha ha” when asked about his thoughts on the City kit.
Indeed, Gallagher is a dab hand at the fashion game having founded the Pretty Green label in 2009, before selling up to JD Sports after it went into administration last year.
