Top 20 Ugliest Manchester United Kits Ever

Manchester United is a proud club with an enviably long list of great players, managers, trophies and milestones. It would be unfair to label the Red Devils as anything less than the greatest English club in the history of the game.

However, when it comes to the extensive wardrobe of past kits the club has donned since it was founded as Newton Heath in 1878, there’s no question some mistakes have been made in the kit room.

It might come as a surprise to learn that United originally played under the aforementioned name of Newton Heath and wore green and gold between 1878 and 1887. As was the case with most clubs in those days, the original kit was far from pretty and subsequently evolved over the course of the following 138 years.

There’s no formula for creating the perfect team strip, though, and the Red Devils have since sported their fair share of atrocious getups albeit while adding to their bulging trophy cabinet with more consistency than any other club in the country.

Containing a variety of the most putrid home, away, third and goalkeeper kits ever worn by Manchester United players, Here are the top 20 ugliest Manchester United kits of all-time.

It really would be a crime if the title of Manchester United’s ugliest kit ever fell to one of the great club’s home uniforms. Fortunately, this number from the 1990-91 season takes the cake by some distance. An away strip with barely a hint of Manchester United class about it, the shirt is entirely covered in an awful pattern of pointy blue shapes that would look more at home on a dressing gown. Coupled with blue shorts and socks with a clashing choice of red for the customary Adidas stripes and trim, this concoction amounts to the most hideous kit in the Red Devils’ history.
