It was planned. Make a low cut shirt; have a small group of loud people who likely wouldn't have bought the shirt complain on social media; generate intrest and web traffic for the club and Adidas; profit!!!

Damned if you do, damned if you don't... I'm with Adidas this time...

I think what Adidas is saying is that women have a choice of buying the regular shirt or buying the shirt especially designed for women. Some may like the regular V-neck, so they buy the regular shirt, others may like the plunging v-neck. They're not forcing women to buy one or the other, it's the women's choice.

No-one complained at Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

One single United fan cries discrimination. One... .

So why not just buy the men's shirt? The women's shirt is just another option if you want it.

Responding to the criticism, Adidas said it took the thoughts of fans into account before producing the kit.

I'll bet. When asked whether women's shirts should have a lower neckline, 97.3% of male fans said yes.

Yeah, they took the 'fans' opinions' into account, alright! The MEN'S opinions! Obviously they did not take into account the opinions of women one iota.
