Juventus have launched their orange and black third kit for the 2020-21 season with Twitter users poking fun at the fact it resembles a Hull City home shirt.
Several first-team stars from the Serie A champions such as Cristiano Ronado, Mattijs De Ligt and Paulo Dybala fronted the kit launch on Wednesday.
It is the first time Juventus have worn an orange shirt in their history, with adidas claiming the colouring expresses ‘confidence and vibrance to reflect the team’s spirit on the pitch.’
Several football fans noticed the resemblance between Juventus’ third kit and the Hull home colours and took to Twitter to make fun of the jersey.
One fan claimed that the Old Lady were ‘channeling their inner Hull City’ with another claimed the Serie A giants were ‘big Hull City fans’.
Another Twitter user pointed at the fact that Juventus were able to release a Hull City-style shirt before the League One side could, even though the third-tier season begins a few weeks before the Italian top-flight.
One fan tweeted: ‘No idea Juventus were planning on twinning with Hull City…Jull City lol’
Juventus agreed a new £45million-a-year deal with kit manufacturers adidas in September 2019.
The 2020-21 season will see Juventus play their first season under new head coach Andrea Pirlo, who was hired in the wake of Maurizio Sarri’s sacking earlier this month.
Argentinian forward Dybala was a major part of the kit launch, even though the Serie A MVP has been strongly linked with a move away from Turin.
Meanwhile, Hull will be playing their first season in England’s third tier in 15 years following their relegation from the Championship last term.
