United's new home kit for the next season is a fusion of classic and modern. While its design is inspired by the club's history, the process used to manufacture it is new and pioneering.

The body of the shirt is traditional red with a white crafted crew neck collar and central black stripe to replicate the design of the club's retro bar scarf, and on the back of the shirts worn by the winners of the 2008 Premier League and Champions League.

While the history and tradition of the club is present in the shirt design, the new home kit is made from Nike's ground-breaking recycled polyester – which for the first time includes both the shirt and shorts.

Each complete kit is made up of up to thirteen reclaimed plastic water bottles, thus reducing energy consumption by up to 30 percent compared to the manufacturing of traditional polyester.

"As players, we get excited when we see the new kit. It's a great feeling to wear it," said Rooney.

Evra added: "When I wear the shirt I feel like I have the club's history on my back. That's why I always give 100 per cent whenever I play in the shirt."

The kit and associated range is available in shops including the Megastore at Old Trafford.
