Manchester United kit issues to be resolved by December after goalkeepers’ recommendations left Andre Onana uncomfortable

The issues surrounding Manchester United kits for the current campaign are expected to be resolved by the end of 2023, according to The Athletic.

The Red Devils stars have complained about the tightness of the items of their adidas kits during games this term.

There have been problems with stitching on their home socks, with some players opting to make holes in the back of the fabric.

Andre Onana has had to ditch the shirt specifically designed for players – with a closer fit than those made available to fans – for a looser, replica version.

Adidas received feedback from Man United’s goalkeepers last season that they wanted the jersey to be tighter, but the former Inter Milan was uncomfortable in it following his arrival in the summer.

Some of them complained that the kit was too baggy, but Onana has a larger frame and the subsequent adjustments made by adidas appear to have backfired.

The German sportswear company is seeking a longer-term solution, with the Cameroon international now set to get a shirt specifically made for him.

The tight kits are not to be blamed for the underwhelming performance of the Man United players this term, but they need to wear something comfortable on the pitch, and changes are expected in the coming weeks.

Most of them have been wearing replica items of kit during games, and nothing appears to be working at the Old Trafford club right now.

They have lost five out of their opening ten Premier League games and two out of their opening three Champions League group games so far this term.

Man United are back in action tonight when they host Newcastle United in the round of 16 of the League Cup, and manager Erik ten Hag and his men will be desperate to return to winning ways.
