'Here we go': Adidas post brilliant Leeds image featuring Phillips & Pablo in three stripes
Adidas have been confirmed as the new Leeds United kit supplier as the Whites head into the Premier League and the sportswear giants posted a brilliant image on Twitter last night.
Leeds were presented with the Championship trophy at Elland Road last night and Adidas celebrated with a fantastic image featuring Gjanni Alioski, Kalvin Phillips and Pablo Hernandez all wearing the three stripes.
The best bit of the image has to be Alisoki riding the peacock with flares in his hands, which captures his character perfectly.
Other fans were loving the image of Phillips, who one fan thought had been mixed with Luke Ayling.

Bielsa is given the respect he deserves in the image, portrayed in gold and sitting on his bucket.
The message simply read, “Here we go with Leeds United… #LUFC: Champions.”
Three stripes – new era
What a whirlwind week it’s been. Leeds fans can scarcely believe what’s happened over the past few days, but a quick look at the final Championship table tells the true story of the season.
It might have taken Leeds a while to prove their dominance but they’ve been by far the best team in the Championship.
The 10-point lead looks great but perhaps doesn’t reflect the nerves Leeds fans were feeling almost all the way to the end.
Now they’re back in the big time and fans can put the horrors of the EFL behind them – hopefully for good.
What better way to celebrate than with a new kit? The announcement has been made now and the Kappa deal officially ended yesterday.
Now we’re waiting for Adidas to unleash the 20/21 kit and we’ve got high hopes.
MOT Leeds News columnist said it’s a “chance to make a really iconic kit, white and gold, white and silver… a really smart kit.”
He said that if Adidas get it right, they could “sell millions”. We certainly can’t wait to see what they do.
