Supporters reckon they’ve seen Sunderland’s new home shirt somewhere before

This is what they'll be wearing in the Championship next season

Sunderland have a new home kit and fans find it rather familiar.

The Black Cats are preparing for life in the Championship next season, having been relegated in bottom place of last season’s Premier League.

A new manager has yet to be selected and the club is finding it tricky to win some supporters back on side after what was an underwhelming campaign under David Moyes.

Their new home jersey, unveiled on Sunday morning, doesn’t appear to have done the trick in that regard.

Sunderland have opted for a thinner stripe for next season, while everything else is almost identical.

But what the new design has done for supporters on Wearside is give them the opportunity to show off their sense of humour.

The reveal prompted some typically hilarious responses of items which bear an uncanny resemblance to the new top.
