Liam Gallagher deletes tweet saying makers of Man City kit – which resembles his clothes range – need sending to Wuhan – The SunMay 22, 2020
LIAM GALLAGHER recommended the makers of Manchester City's upcoming 2020/21 kit be sent to WUHAN – before deleting the tweet.
The Oasis rocker is well known for pulling off some iconic outfits over the years, including his own fashion range.
However the leaked City kits, featuring a fractured-style home shirt and paisley third kit, were deemed well below-par.
Gallagher tweeted on Friday morning: "Who ever is responsible for that new Man City kit needs putting on the nxt flight to WUHAN and who ever buys it needs to be on the 1 after c’mon you should f****** know LG x"
Ironically, Puma were quoted in the leak as saying the designs were inspired by Manchester's thriving BritPop music scene of the 1990s – from which Oasis emerged.
Soon after, the 47-year-old deleted the tweet with the Chinese city of Wuhan the epicentre of the global coronavirus pandemic.
He then wrote "ZEN AS F***" in a subsequent social media post, adding "Ha ha ha ha" when asked about his thoughts on the City kit.
Indeed, Gallagher is a dab hand at the fashion game having founded the Pretty Green label in 2009, before selling up to JD Sports after it went into administration last year.
Some pointed out to Gallagher that he has donned plenty of paisley over the years but he urged his beloved Citizens to "keep it simple".
Fans have rallied against Puma's new designs ahead of their reported release later this summer.
Twitter critics likened the shirt to "cells under a microscope" as kit manufacturers becoming increasingly bold in their designs.
One commenter appeared to agree with Gallager in dubbing it the: "Coronavirus edition."
Another City fan account wrote: "On a serious note why does Puma think it’s a good idea to have kits looking like broken glass and cells under a microscope? Getting less people to buy your shirts is a terrible business model."
Teo remarked: "I don’t want to look like James May."
But Twitter user Robbie added: "This is one of those shirts that people hate at the time but in 10-20 years people will be scrambling to get a hold of."
