Adidas cock-up Man United jacket sale

13 October 2015

Retro clobber is big business for football fans. Sometimes it is because the old-school designs are much nicer, and in other instances, it lets people be nostalgic for a time when they weren't jaded about football.

And so, to Adidas, who are selling a tracksuit top from when Manchester United won the FA Cup with Ron Atkinson. It is a classic old design, and of course, at £65 a pop, it will make some people splutter in disgust.

There's just one problem with the way Adidas are selling this top...

That's right!

To complete the look, any self respecting Manchester United fan will also have to buy some tracksuit bottoms with a Chelsea FC logo on them. [insert LOLOLOLOL here]

What a mistake to make.

    The image is probably accurate for 90% of United / Chelsea fans. Gives them the option to quickly switch allegance depending on whos winning the league. If you unzipped that top hes probably wearing a City shirt underneath.

    designed like that to reflect the premier league, hence it's a Man Utd TOP! and Chelsea BOTTOM(s)

    Seems like a good little publicity ruse to me.
