Liverpool's unveil new home hit for the 2019-20 season with a 1980s vibe to it

Liverpool will be hoping the current kit becomes as iconic as '84.

Liverpool have announced their new home kit for the 2019/20 season.

It could be the very last of their current deal with New Balance, a company Liverpool have dealt with since 2012 when subsidiary Warrior made the kits.

New Balance officially took over in 2015 and have made Liverpool's kits since.

But with the contract expiring at the end of next season, this will likely be the final home kit by the company.

Reports strongly link Nike with a deal that would become the biggest in the Premier League, eclipsing Manchester United's deal with Adidas.

Given that United's is worth £750 million, it shows how far the Reds have come in recent years.

As for New Balance, they'll want to go out in style.

And they've taken a look back to Liverpool's glory years for inspiration.

The new kit is a modern take on Liverpool's 1980s kits, particularly the 1984 League and European Cup winning kit.

You can check the kit out in the tweet below:

It's a classy look and who doesn't love a good retro kit?

Liverpool's time with New Balance has exactly been trophy-laden but there's still some time to rectify that.

It's the current kit that they'll be hoping to make history in, of course, as the Reds chase a League and European double for the first time since '84.

Seven wins could do it - providing Manchester City slip up and help them out a bit. If they pull it off, maybe the current kit could provide similar inspiration to the '84 kit one day.
