Liverpool have unveiled their new 2019/20 kit which honours the club's most successful manager Bob Paisley, who would have turned 100 this year.
The kit, modelled by Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Alisson Becker and Mohammed Salah, is inspired by the strip worn during the 1982/83 season, in which Liverpool won their 14th league title and Paisley won his sixth as Reds manager.
Liverpool say "the shirt is a special tribute in the year in which he would have turned 100 and the long-lasting legacy he left at the club".
Each shirt has been inscribed with Paisley's signature on the inside of the neck, and also features an official swing tag dedicated to the former manager who won three European Cups as Liverpool boss. The 2019/20 home kit also features white pin stripes on the front of the shirt, as they were on the 1982/83 jersey.
Liverpool and New Balance have chosen to retain the popular "Red Pepper" colour-way for the coming season, which was also a feature of the 1982/83 kit.
To commemorate the tragic events of Hillsborough, the 96 emblem, surrounded by flames, sits at the nape of the neck.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, said: "This year's home kit is incredibly strong. I'm really looking forward to wearing it every time we play at our beloved home of Anfield, as a symbol of the pride and passion you have when you're a Red."
"It's also a really fitting tribute to one of our greatest managers, Bob Paisley, and is a fantastic way to remember all his success."
This season's goalkeeper strip comes in a strong 'Phantom' black colour and has been developed in line with the outfield players' jerseys.
Goalkeeper, Alisson Becker who will wear the No 1 shirt next season said: "I'm incredibly impressed by the style of this season's goalkeeper jersey - it will really stand out on the pitch and will look great alongside the home kit."
