MANCHESTER UNITED have made an historic change to their badge with fuming fans labelling the club “a disgrace”.
The third kit will feature just a devil rather than the club crest with designers adidas going for a minimalist look.
The kit won’t feature the words Manchester United, the club’s badge layout or the ship which have been a permanent feature since the 1970s.
Instead, only a devil will appear on the shirt, which is off white in colour, and will be used when it is not possible to wear the club’s dark green away kit with white stripes.
Furious fans have taken to social media to vent their anger at the decision.
One user said: “Disgusting and I hope nobody buys it.”
A seconded commented: “Horrid decision. Let’s stop pretending that companies are ‘embracing all religions and races’ when they just put a straight devil on the shirt. Boycotts incoming.”
A third added: “At least it’s only the 3rd kit… absolutely hate this.”
A fourth said: “Hope nobody buys what the actual f***.”
The home and away kits will still feature the classic badge.

The last time the badge was changed was in 1998, the year before the Treble, when the words football club were removed.
There had been debate about whether the ship was an appropriate symbol on the crest due to potential association with the slave trade but according to The Athletic it is purely a design choice by adidas.
Adidas have taken a similar approach with Arsenal’s away shirt this season as they removed the club crest and just kept the cannon.
Despite agreeing an early termination of their sponsorship, Team Viewer will remain as the shirt sponsor next season.
Manchester United will hope to complete a domestic cup double when they take on Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.
