Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time, Manchester United fans.

Ever since 90min's very own Scott Saunders posted a toe-curlingly ugly image of the club's apparent 2020/21 third kit in March, supporters have been desperately searching for any scrap of evidence that the shirt was a fake.

Then, photos of training kit sporting a similarly zebra-inspired look were leaked at the beginning of June, leaving the Old Trafford faithful with the tiniest scrap of hope of avoiding the bizarre garment.

That last shred of optimism now seems to have been extinguished, with MORE images of the suddenly infamous jersey emerging on Footy Headlines.

The design has been described as 'dazzle camo', and anyone brave enough to buy one better hope that it does indeed act as effective camouflage against the hordes of opposition fans who will be lining up to take the piss out of them.

There is at least some method to this madness - though this is unlikely to be of much comfort to supporters. The black and white colour scheme is apparently inspired by United strips of old, many of which have featured the two shade combination.

That particular colour palette was most recently used during the 1990/91 season, during which the Red Devils limped to a sixth placed finish in the First Division and lost in the League Cup final. That bodes really well, doesn't it?

It's not all bad news. If you stare at the design for a long enough it properly messes up your vision due to how garish it is. Perhaps United can use this to their advantage next season?

Yes, we can imagine it now. Marcus Rashford racing past defenders who have had their eyesight permanently altered from having to gaze upon the 'dazzle camo' for too long. Genius.
