THE new Liverpool home kit for 2014-15, launched in Liverpool city centre yesterday, was designed with an eye on the classic kits worn by Reds players during the era of legendery forward Roger Hunt in the 1960s. As well as calling on current stars – Simon Mignolet, Jordan Henderson, Kolo Toure and Philippe Coutinho – to do some modelling, LFC asked another legendary striker, Robbie Fowler, along to help with the unveiling.
The current players had emerged from a shipping container outside the Hilton to show off the new kit; all-red of course for the outfield players, purple for the goalkeeper.
Afterwards TAW’s Mike Nevin and Jim Boardman were joined by Matt Ladson from This is Anfield for an exclusive chat with Robbie.
