Man City's third kit causes headaches at the Camp Nou
Pep Guardiola was back at the Camp Nou, a night of incredible Champions League football lay in store with reigning Spanish champions Barcelona hosting mighty Manchester City... but as the teams came out the fans only had one thought on their mind... WHAT ON EARTH ARE CITY WEARING?
City decided to wear their third kit v Barça
The answer, their third Champions league kit. A strip of pure orange and purple hell, designed by someone intending to inflict ocular pain on football fans across the planet. And who succeeded.
And as is the way in these hyper-connected times, the Internet didn't take long to point and laugh...
You wouldn't think a club with Manchester City's resources would be reduced to wearing knock-off 2011 Kochi Tuskers Kerala kit.— Jonathan Wilson (@jonawils) 19 October 2016
And we admit we too got involved...

Can I sue Manchester City for damage to my eyes from that kit?— Ian McCourt (@ianmccourt) 19 October 2016

Though some were maybe a bit TOO cruel...
The only way City think they can be anything like Barca is by wearing Barca's old 3rd kit 😂— #COYG (@abz_gooner) 19 October 2016
