Man City 2021-22 away colours 'leaked' with controversial European Super League theme.. and fans are split
MANCHESTER CITY'S away colours for next season have reportedly been leaked online.
And the design is strikingly similar to the controversial European Super League's colour scheme.
City were one of the Premier League's greedy six – with Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham – who attempted to ruin football by joining the breakaway closed shop franchise.
But it collapsed within days as football fans rose up against the plans.
However, bad feeling remains among supporters with fans protesting against their club owners to varying degrees.
And that sensitivity came to the fore again when images from FootyHeadlines claimed to show City's away colour scheme for next season.

Training gear – including hoodies and zip-up tops – had pink and turquoise details similar to those in the European Super League badge.
FootyHeadlines said: "The colorway is somewhat reminiscent of the one used throughout the branding of the failed European Super League, which City were set to form a part of.
"It's likely just a pure coincidence but we could see this aspect of the design being unpopular with the club's supporters, who were largely against the breakaway league, nonetheless."
They also released a picture of a darker blue home strip superimposed on to a smiling Kevin De Bruyne.
