Liverpool fans react after alleged new third kit leak

Liverpool fans are up in arms after an image, allegedly of their new third kit for the upcoming season, was apparently leaked online.

The picture, which was uploaded onto popular social network site Reddit, shows a man posing in a lime green shirt with a white strip and blue panel across the shoulders.

So far this summer Liverpool have unveiled their red home kit, which features gold detailing, for the 2016/17 campaign back in May, while their black away kit followed in June. The home kit also features a touching tribute to those who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster on the back.

Both kits were generally met with a positive response - sadly that hasn't been the case with the third kit.

Liverpool fans were furious on Reddit and Twitter following the image leak, and you can check out the best of their reaction below.

Of course it's worth noting that, although similar images of a lime green kit have cropped up in the past which adds weight to the claims that this image is the real deal, Liverpool are yet to officially release the third kit and fans will have to wait and see before knowing for sure.

One man who most likely won't be wearing any of the Liverpool kits next season is striker Christian Benteke.

The Belgian, who joined the Reds from Aston Villa in 2015 for a fee worth £32.5 million, has been heavily linked with a move to Crystal Palace.

The London-based club are said to have agreed terms with the 25-year-old, although so far a fee hasn't been agreed with Liverpool and there's a chance that the deal may fall through unless that changes quickly.
