Man Utd make 66-yr kit change for Galatasaray draw

Manchester United wore red shorts for the very first time in the last 66 years this week.

The Red Devils, who took on Galatasaray in the Champions League group stages, rarely wear the combination of white shirts and red shorts.

However, they donned that attire in Istanbul on Wednesday night during a pulsating 3-3 draw.

United took the lead through Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes, while Scott McTominay later gave them a 3-1 lead.

However, several Andre Onana howlers meant the game finished 3-3, with United bottom of their group.

The Red Devils now need to beat Bayern Munich on the final day and hope that FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray play out a draw.
