Liverpool have unveiled their new Warrior home kit for the 2013-14 season, and following the American supplier's impressive debut home outing, their new design is an improvement.
Whereas this season's Anfield ensemble boasts little white, it is back at the tips of the sleeves and the collar, offering a more distinctive Liverpool lining.
The Liver Bird crest's return last year was a welcome addition away from the overblown official club badge, and the new garb has the seal of approval from the manager.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers said: “It’s distinctly Liverpool which the players and I love. It exceeds what we need it to do technically while also delivering a strong visual statement."
Heartening for Reds is the presence of Luis Suárez and Pepe Reina modelling the kit, two players linked with moves away from Merseyside this summer.
Running alongside the embroidered emblem, a new pin-striped sublimation print on the front of the shirt showcases the iconic symbol with the words, ‘Liverpool FC’. Interwoven using a darker red hue, this eye-catching detail strengthens the kit’s visual depth.
And in line with the 2012/13 version, two embroidered Eternal Flames alongside a 96 logo are located on the nape of the shirt’s neck to commemorate the events at Hillsborough in 1989.
The kit is a tribute to Liverpool's 1984 European Cup win, when the Reds defeated Roma on penalties at the Stadio Olimpico.
