Man United historic changes in decades old badge infuriates fans

Manchester United fans have been expressing their anger following a significant alteration to the club’s iconic badge.

It has been reported that the club’s upcoming third kit for the next season will showcase notable changes, particularly to the badge design, as Adidas, the kit designer, has chosen a minimalist approach.

According to The Sun, the new kit will feature a simplified representation of the devil instead of the traditional club crest, which has been a prominent symbol associated with Manchester United for many years.

The publication adds that the kit will also be without the words ‘Manchester United’, the club’s badge layout or the ship, which have been mainstay features on United’s merchandise since the 1970s.

Leaked photos of the new design showed that the kit will only feature a devil, which is white in colour.

This has not gone down well with a majority of fans, who quickly took to social media to express their displeasure with the new design.

@forealutd tweeted:

“We’re the Red Devils and our badge has a devil so why not?”

@MTrenardSikse added:

“Not a fan of this at all.”

@UTDTushar concluded:

“This is insane tbh.”

Man United badge changes

It is understood that Manchester United have not changed their badge since 1998, the year before they won the treble.

At the time, only the words football club were removed.

Meanwhile, there has been a raging debate if the ship on the United’s badge is an appropriate symbol as it risks the association with the slave trade.

However, according to The Athletic, the latest changes are purely a design choice made by Adidas, who are United’s kit makers.

Be that as it may, the Red Devils’ home and away kits will still feature the classic badge.
