Manchester fans have been reacting online after the club this morning released its new home kit for the 2021/22 season, in tribute to Sergio Aguero’s iconic goal in 2012.
The sky blue shirt features the ’93:20′ scoreboard pattern in recognition of Sergio Aguero’s historic Premier League title-winning goal in 2012, ten seasons ago.
The memory of the legendary 93:20 season echoes through the new Home kit as a striking all-over repeated graphic of a digital clock paying tribute to the remarkable generation of players and the last-minute strike that sealed the league in a way no football fan could have predicted.
The Home jersey is complemented by sky blue shorts and hooped socks to complete the look. It has been finally unveiled, with midfielder Kevin De Bruyne among those modelling the new shirt.
On PUMA’s official website, a statement on City’s latest home kit read: “For Manchester City the 2011/12 season was a thriller, it started with an array of exciting signings and ended with 93:20 – a momentous goal that secured the club’s first Premier League title, marking the climax of the league’s most remarkable season and the beginning of a new era for Manchester City.
“Since this historic moment, City have gone on to win the Premier League title five times in the last 10 seasons.
“The new Manchester City Home jersey combines 100% recycled polyester with advanced PUMA dryCELL thermoregulation technology to ensure uncompromising fit and mobility, keeping the athlete dry and comfortable.
“The jersey integrates an ultra-light jacquard structure into the back of the jersey to enhance breathability during intense performance.”
And below is how Manchester City supporters have been reacting to the unveiling of their side’s new kit.
