CHELSEA supporters have not reacted well after their kit was allegedly leaked online.
Nike are in charge of designing the Premier League side’s new jersey for the upcoming campaign.
Footy Headlines have now revealed the first snaps of the one that is set to be released for next season.
And it is safe to say that it has divided opinion among the Stamford Bridge faithful.
The leak shows that Chelsea’s home shirt will be all-blue again in a fairly basic design.
It features Nike’s new ‘Vaporknit’ pattern with the Nike and Three logos being white.
However, it is the henley neckline that has proven to be the most controversial addition.
It features a turquoise and white lion pattern, which is based on the club’s crest.
But once it was revealed online in the leak, supporters of Thomas Tuchel’s team were not that impressed with it.
And they hit out at unimaginative Nike via Twitter.

One wrote: “Why do Nike do us so dirty?”
While another said: “The leaked kit seemed good till I looked at that collar…”
One did like the collar pattern – they just wanted it elsewhere.
They commented: “If true then a shame they didn’t use the collar details for the sleeves.”
But not every supporter blasted the design, with one stating: “Looks incredible. Will be even better without the 3 logo.”
Three announced they were suspending the £40m-a-year sponsorship deal with Chelsea after Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK Government due to his ties with Vladimir Putin.
But the club have confirmed that they will continue to have the company’s logo on the front of their shirts for the remainder of the campaign.
