Manchester City fans have slated their club’s new third kit as the ‘worst ever’.

City launched their £70 jersey on Wednesday featuring a bold new design.

The Premier League champions have DITCHED the traditional club badge.

Instead, the dark navy top simply bears the words ‘Man City’ across the chest, with the badge subtle printed in the background.

Indeed, the top appears to resemble a training shirt instead of an actual game-day jersey.

And disgruntled City fans were quick to criticise the dramatic new move.

Another said: “I can’t wait for this to be in the clearance bin for £4.99 at the end of the season so I can still not buy it. Appalling.”

One added: “This is genuinely the worst kit I have ever seen. Apologies to City, but it is what it is.”

The striking red-and-blue third top was slammed by Blues fans revealed.

And many compared to the home kit of London rivals Crystal Palace.

The shirt made its debut in the 3-3 draw at relegated West Brom, prompting others to add Chelsea not only looked like Palace but played like them too.

In December, almost 2,000 people voted it the WORST football kit in the world.

The unwanted award was given by Footy Headlines, with Chelsea taking 22 per cent of the vote ahead of monstrosities from Wolves and West Brom.

There were further fears when Champions League sponsors Gazprom appeared to hint Chelsea would wear the third kit in their final against Man City.

However, the Blues opted for their traditional home top as they romped to a 1-0 win to secure their second European title.
