Juventus and Manchester City used their star men to promote their newly released kits, but they could not cover up jerseys that were quickly ridiculed on social media.

Cristiano Ronaldo fronted the Juventus kit launch and while the Portuguese superstar smiled his way through the photo session, he didn't give his views on what he thought of the yellow, white and blue strip.

Social media reaction was damning, with an unimpressed Twitter user suggesting it looked like a kit that would be better suited for primary school children.

Yet that was nothing compared to the feedback on Manchester City's new third kit, as this effort doesn't even feature the club badge.

Instead, Man City is written in bold letters below the logo for the club's kit manufacturer Puma, with City fans joining their rivals in suggesting the 'bold' new kit has missed the mark.

One Twitter user was quick to do his own version of the new City kit by taking the Man City heading strap off and adding the club badge and instantly, the kit looked a lot more credible.

Top football clubs might have more money than sense these days, but their fashion choices continue to divide opinion.
