Andre Onana reportedly complained about the tightness of his strip. Adidas have reportedly solved Manchester United’s kit issues, which prompted some players to wear replica shirts instead of player-made versions during the early stages of the season.
Several stars were reportedly left unhappy with how tight their kit fitted and complaints were lodged to the manufacturer. Pressure has mounted on the shoulders of Erik ten Hag as a result, though the club’s struggles haven’t only been performance-related.
Earlier this season, United stars were left unhappy with elements of their kits, specifically their home socks. The goalkeeper also opted to wear a replica version as a result, though adjustments have now been made.
According to the Daily Mail, Adidas have made ‘light amendments’ to their kits and now their official player-issued strips. The matter was expected to be resolved by December but the issues took longer to amend than initially anticipated, with the changes only recently coming into effect.
This has the same material and quality they have worn throughout the season, as with all club-issued socks. The Red Devils will take on Aston Villa on Sunday night, and it appears likely that player-issued kits will be worn by all players at the game.
Ten Hag’s side head into the match in good form after winning their last two matches, beating Wolves 4-3 before cruising to victory against West Ham over the weekend. Rasmus Hojlund opened the scoring on Sunday against David Moyes’ side before Alejandro Garnacho stole the show with goals either side of half-time.
The 19-year-old has scored five goals and assisted two in 21 Premier League appearances so far this season, asserting himself as Ten Hag’s first-choice option on the right wing.
