Manchester United jerseys are too tight to be worn by the players

According to Daily Mail, due to the Adidas gear being too tight, players are wearing replica jerseys during games. Andre Onana, the recently signed £47.1 million Manchester United goalkeeper, has also experienced problems with his shirt.

A few players on Erik ten Hag‘s squad have complained that their socks are too small, and a few of them have decided to make holes in the rear of the material to wear during the current season.

Onana was wearing the player-specific jersey, which fits closer than the fan-only versions. However, the above report claims that Onana thought the shirt to be too tight, thus he has since moved to a looser replica shirt.

The Cameroon international is believed to have reached a breaking point during United’s 2-1 victory over Sheffield United on October 21, at which point he requested to switch to a different shirt.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka of Manchester United is just one of several Premier League players who have tears in the back of their socks. Although David de Gea’s shirt drew criticism last season for being overly baggy, it appears Adidas has gone too far in the opposite direction with their latest design.

The polyester used to make current football socks is better at maintaining shape and retaining less water, but it can still feel constricting and tight.

When Manchester United play Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup fourth round this Wednesday, they will be hoping to recover from their 3-0 home loss to rivals Manchester City. Ten Hag should be optimistic that Manchester United can break out of their current slump.
