Why Pick the Man Utd Goalkeeper Kit?
Adidas launch both new home and away goalkeeper kits for Manchester United every season in addition to the outfield strips, if it is these that you are looking for visit our Man Utd football shirts page where you can see all the latest Man Utd goalkeeper, home, away and third jerseys.
The goalkeeper has traditionally had his own design of shirt to ensure that he stands out from the rest of the squad and is easy for the players to pick out. The Man Utd home goalkeeper shirt is generally green in colour, the away is often yellow or black. The popularity of a goalkeeper kit is very much dependent on the skill of the squad’s number 1 and Manchester United have had some of the top goalkeepers in the world on their team sheet over the years. Here are a few of the most notable wearers of the Man Utd goalie kit.
- Peter Schmeichel: 1991-1999
- Edwin van der Sar: 2005-2011
- David de Gea: 2011-present
The goalkeeper kit also offers a different style fit to that of the outfield players, as the goalie has a vastly different job to the rest of the team. The Manchester United goalkeeper kit in the past had padding placed at the elbows, however, the modern goalie kit does not have this feature. There is also a rise in short-sleeve goalkeeper jerseys, whereas they used to be exclusively long-sleeve shirts. The Man Utd goalkeeper shirt always has a rounded neckline and offers a relaxed and comfortable fit. Of course, as an official Adidas product the Manchester United goalie kit includes mesh ventilation channels and moisture control design within the fabric.
