Gunners’ fans voice displeasure at rumoured ‘Ajaxenal’ kit

Arsenal’s reported new home kit for the 2021-22 season has been shared online and many fans have already made their feelings known regarding the new design.  

The shirt was shared by FootyHeadlines and will be mainly red, with white sleeves and side panels.  It will also feature navy stripes on the collar.  The kit is reportedly set to go on sale in July. 

The strip has prompted much talk among Gunner’s fans, however, who are comparing it to the Dutch side Ajax’s famous colour. Indeed, many believe that the strip looks more like four-time Champions League winners rather than the team from North London. 

One fan has already tweeted saying: 

Dressing up as Ajax won’t get us playing in the UCL lads” 

Another, meanwhile, named it:

“Ajaxenal”

While one supporter even went as far as praising the Dutch side, who are set to face Roma in the Europa League quarter-finals this week. 

They wrote:

“It’s Ajax FC we’re by far the greatest team the world has ever seen.” 

Finally, another said: 

“If we’re going to commit to relying on a bunch of youngsters, may as well go 100% Ajax.”

Some supporters have also jokingly suggested that it was in fact a ploy to get fan favourite Marc Overmars to return to North London.  

Overmars is currently the Director of football at the Dutch club, but is rumoured to be leaving before too long and fans would clearly welcome the chance for the Dutch winger to replace their current Director Edu, whose position has come under intense scrutiny.  

The Gunners reported third kit design, meanwhile, has gone down much better with the supporters as it is invoking memories of a classic jersey from 1994-1996, referred to as ‘Blue Lightening’. It will perhaps rekindle memories of the likes of Dennis Bergkamp and Ian Wright. 

For the current crop of players and manager Mikel Arteta, they will hope that this new kit change sparks a substantial improvement and better things to come next season.
