Making the Arsenal kit for the first time since 1994, adidas pulled out all the stops, including a collar reminiscent of the one seen on the home shirt worn by the Cup Winners' Cup side of 1993/94.

Speaking at the Armoury store, Seaman revealed his delight with the design, telling Islington Gazette Arsenal reporter Dan Mountney: "I love the kit.

"My first season at Arsenal was adidas so I've got great memories, great pictures of it. I just love it.

"The fans look great in it, I've been taking photographs with them. It's a kit that just looks good.

"I'd give it 10 out of 10. It looks proper.

"I won my first championship in a kit like this. It's modern and retro."

As for the goalkeeper shirt Seaman added: "My jersey was a little bit louder than the goalkeeper one.

"I like a nice black kit. I had some belters with England so I can hardly talk about bright kits, but I do like this one."
