To celebrate the launch of the new Manchester City Home shirt, kit suppliers Umbro got up close and personal to some of the stars of the Premier League title winning side.

As well as giving their opinions on the new kit, the City stars shed some light on a variety of different topics, including;

Mario Balotelli

Samir Nasri

The Home shirt retains City’s iconic sky blue colour and also incorporates black detailing and trim which takes influence from the 1969 FA Cup and 1970 League Cup winning kits.  The new Away shirt sees a return to the classic maroon colour worn by the FA Cup winning teams of 1934 and 1956, also tailored by Umbro.

The away kit is on general sale now, while the home kit goes on sale 26th July. Both kits are available to buy at
