In an interview with The Daily Telegraph Sunderland manager Roy Keane has stated how important it is for his team to have a good kit. Keane said:
“I really think it’s important to have a nice kit,”
“You don’t see teams with bad kits winning the European Cup or leagues. Barcelona, United, Arsenal – beautiful kits. We need a beautiful kit.”
with Sunderland just having released photos of the new Umbro home shirt for next season, it seems Roy may have had a say in the clubs final design for the kit.
