While the Tottenham fans had mixed opinions on the bright yellow shirt with a navy trim, with the cockerel badge, Nike swoosh and AIA logo all central on the chest, they were united in their displeasure at one mistake.

Next referred to the club as Tottenham Hotspurs, an error that never fails to wind up the fans.

Here is the kit that was briefly on sale at Next for £70 on Sunday evening before it was taken down and off sale.

One Spurs fan remarked on Twitter among others about the Hotspurs gaffe: “I cannot describe how much that bothers me.”

In Monday’s official description of the new yellow kit, Spurs explained the reasoning behind it.

“The kit is designed head-to-toe in yellow – a classic Spurs shirt colour – with a navy blue trim on a crew collar, shirt sleeves and socks,” read their launch release.

“Subtle bands of yellow grow increasingly darker as they flow down the front of the jersey, owing to the influence of the iconic Nike Air Max 95 trainers, a popular style on the streets of north London.

“Our crest and the Nike swoosh are positioned centrally in a nod to famous past yellow kits, including the shirts worn during our FA Cup Final triumph in 1982 and selected subsequent European outings as our success continued into the mid-1980s with UEFA Cup glory in 1984.”

The new third kit is available to purchase from 8am on Monday September 14, with training and leisure items from the collection arriving in early October.

From next Monday, fans will also be able to get their hands on the new Spurs third kit-inspired AS Air Max 2090 trainers, which have been designed alongside the new kit.
