Manchester City Troll League One Side For New Nike Kit

English Premier League giants Manchester City took on Twitter to mock the new third kit of League One side Northampton Town.



Man City Mocks New Northampton Town 17-18 Third Kit

Here is Manchester City's tweet to troll Northampton Town for their new third jersey.


Northampton Town's 17-18 third shirt is almost identical to last season's Manchester City third kit. Three days after the club proudly presented their new third shirt for the 2017-2018 League One campaign, Man City swooped in and replied with a tweet essentially insinuating Northampton's shiny new third kit would be knock-off kits from last season.

However, it is not the club's fault at first glance that the kits are as similar as the new Northampton Town 17-18 third kit is based on Nike's all-new Precision III IV Teamwear jersey. The club could have nevertheless chosen another kit from Nike's Teamwear offering to avoid that controversy.



Nike or Northampton Town? Who is to blame here? Let us know in the comments below.
