Juventus mocked for green shirt: It’s like Shrek or Teletubbies

Juventus unveiled their new green away kit for last night's Champions League defeat against Atletico Madrid to much amusement.

Juventus wore their new green away kit for their Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid last night and it didn't get the best of responses.

The bright green shirt won some unfavourable comparisons on social media, being compared to Shrek and also to the Teletubbies.

Others took it more seriously. One Twitter user remarked: "A trial for crimes against humanity for whoever came up with Juventus's fluorescent green kit."


 Another angry fan labelled the shirt: "An insult to Juventus's history and tradition" and stated: "It's really true: Marketing ruins football." 

 To make matters worse, the shirt had a losing debut as Juventus were beaten 1-0 by Atletico Madrid after giving a defensive performance.

Still, things could be worse, at least they don't have Napoli's dreadful denim jeans inspired away kit.
