Southampton's superheroes reveal new home and away kits

Gone are the days of a simple Premier League kit release, as Southampton take things to the next level with their #MadeForHeroes campaign this summer. 

Following a two-part animated video series in which four players are re-imagined as 80s superheroes, the club have released their home and away strip for next season.

The video sees the stars having to steal back Southampton's secrets from an anonymous villain bearing a striking resemblance to former boss Ronald Koeman, who left for Everton last summer.

At the end of the two-part series the club's new kits are revealed, an Under Armour creation that throws back to the early 1980s.

In comparison to last season's design, the 2017-18 strip features a lot more white, with red sleeves and black shorts, as was the case last time out. 

Manolo Gabbiadini, Ryan Bertrand, Fraser Forster and Maya Yoshida were the four players chosen for the campaign, as they flew around in their animated adventure.

At the end of the video, it was not only the home kit revealed, as a trendy new black and blue away strip is also shown.

Fraser Forster - should he still be a Southampton player next season - will wear a green goalkeeper's kit as they look to finish in the top eight once again.

For now though, there is some uncertainty at St Mary's as the club search for Claude Puel's successor.

The Frenchman was sacked this week, with Frank De Boer and Mauricio Pellegrino on the shortlist to replace him.
