Photos appearing to show Manchester United’s new away kit for the 2022/23 season have surfaced online.

Last season’s away shirt resembled the club’s 1990/92 geometric blue and these new leaked photos, with the blend of white shirt with black shorts, suggest the current players will be toasting the 2010/11 team as well as the 2015/16 side.

The images come after leaked pictures of the home kit appeared last week with United adopting pinstripes on the famous red shirt.

The new away strip is inspired by the club’s white away shirt in 2015/16 and the third strip from 2010/11 as worn in their Champions League final defeat to Barcelona at Wembley.

The simple but effective design is sure to wow United fans who will be hoping it can help push the club to greater heights next season.

It has been a tough season for the 20-time champions under the gaze of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, then, Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick was expected to stay on next season in a two-year consultancy role but it was confirmed on Sunday he would no longer be taking up the role.

Instead, he has left United and will be working as Austria’s national team coach on a full-time basis.

Erik ten Hag takes the reins this summer, hoping to bring happier times back to Old Trafford and the Dutchman is already looking forward to testing himself against Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp.

The Red Devils fell way below the expected level of them and finished the season with the club’s lowest points haul in the Premier League era, leaving Ten Hag with his work cut out to close the gap on City and Liverpool.

It is unlikely that Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani and Jesse Lingard will be kitted out in the new design with their contracts at Old Trafford set to expire at the end of June.

However, Ten Hag is ready to launch his rebuilding process with the Dutchman linked with a raid on former club Ajax for £ 50 million-rated defender Jurrien Timber and Brazilian winger Antony.

Ten Hag also admitted that star forward Cristiano Ronaldo will play a key role next season and is expecting ‘goals’ from the 37-year-old.
