Low cut: United’s female strip has come in for criticism

Manchester United’s new kit supplier Adidas has defended itself against claims the design of the new Manchester United female jersey is sexist.

The sportswear giant unveiled United’s home strip for the new season on August 1, but came in for criticism from some quarters for the low neckline which features on the women’s shirt.

However, an Adidas spokesperson said: “Adidas provides an adult shirt which is a replica of what the players wear.

“Based on research from fans, we also offer a women’s shirt as part of our lifestyle range of products.

“This range has a slightly different design and fit to give fans a choice.”

Despite the criticism received by Adidas, some supporters defended the shirt, with United fan Natalie Dickinson posting a photo of her wearing the shirt.

She said: “I love my shirt. Makes a nice change as I usually feel like I’m being strangled by t-shirts/football shirts.

“It’s actually quite flattering as it’s not as if they don’t have the choice of buying the men’s one instead.”
