Braga's new third kit is dividing opinion

It’s that time of year again.

With summer now upon us, clubs across the planet are recruiting new players, changing managers - and releasing their new kits in preparation for the new season.

Such kit designs are often similar every year, subtle alterations all that separate any given kit in a club’s history from another.

But every year, a select few end up being almost universally praised for their innovative style - while others are then mocked, often for a very similar reason.

Innovation and creativity can be well and good - but can also prove controversial amongst fans and neutrals alike.

And it seems that this year’s design for Braga’s third kit conforms to the latter, the style receiving some harsh criticism from many due to its rather unusual, outlandish design.

Os Guerreiros do minho - The Minho Warriors - have selected a strip that reflects their nickname; but what do you make of it?
