Jeff Stelling slates Man Utd training kit and says ‘even Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t make that look acceptable’
SOCCER SATURDAY host Jeff Stelling slammed Manchester United’s new training kit forward of their 4-1 win in opposition to Newcastle.
The legendary anchor was shocked on the polarising design, claiming not even Cristiano Ronaldo might make it look as much as scratch.
Watching a clip of Ronaldo, 36, working out to warm-up, Stelling stated: “Goodness me, that is a shocker of a training high, is not it.
“I mean it is a true shocker. Even Ronaldo could not make that look acceptable. Goodness me!”
But it mattered not as Ronaldo struck twice on his return in a 4-1 win.
The Portuguese legend poked house on the stroke of half-time earlier than scoring a trademark left-footed strike to place United again within the lead after Javier Manquillo had equalised.
Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard then scored late on to safe all three factors.
United launched the jazzy red-and-white training kit three months in the past and put on it earlier than each sport.

An outline of the highest on the membership’s website reads: The pre-match jersey symbolises what these moments main as much as kick-off imply: the emotion, the eagerness and the delight.
“Inspired by colours from the club’s historic past, this short-sleeved jersey is what the players will warm up in before a game… the woven club badge provides inspiration for all of those who wear it.”
Stelling’s feedback had been uploaded to Sky Sports News’ official Twitter account and followers had been fast to answer the presenter.
One replied: “Keep up Jeff! They’ve worn it every game so far this season.”
While one other wrote: “Haters can stop hating. Who is this Jeff Stelling bloke?”
And one fan added: “If Sky Sports News paid Jeff to wear that for £500,000-a-week, I’m sure he wouldn’t mind throwing it on.”
But others agreed with Stelling, with one Twitter consumer responding: “Spot on, it’s absolutely horrendous.”
While one other added: “What a terrible training jersey.”
Man Utd went on to beat Newcastle 4-1 at Old Trafford, with Ronaldo scoring twice on his second debut.
