Shane Long Will Be Wearing Green For Southampton Next Year And It Looks Lovely

Shane Long Will Be Wearing Green For Southampton Next Year And It Looks Lovely

We're used to seeing Shane Long strut his stuff in the green of Ireland and now we'll get to see him do it at club level as well.

Southampton have unveiled their new away kit for next season and perhaps in an attempt to make Shane Long feel more at home, it is a lush mint/pea green kind of colour. According to the Saints website the shirt features "an impactful navy sash on a green base". Impactful indeed.

It's a bold move from Southampton who have moved away from the rather safe option of navy blue from last season. The Saints will be hoping it can mesmerise European opposition next year as they take part in the Europa League for the first time.

Our fashion forward eye fully approves of it and are glad to see a return to the premiership of a green outfield kit, considering the colour is usually reserved for goalkeepers in recent times. Here's hoping other clubs take Southampton's lead and we see the unveiling of some more interesting kits in the coming weeks.
