KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) – Manchester United’s fans in Malaysia erupted in astonishment and anger on social media Thursday after clerics warned Muslims against wearing the team’s famous jersey with its “devil” emblem.

Manchester United and the rest of the English Premier League are hugely popular in Muslim-majority Malaysia, where conservative religious leaders said the jersey was un-Islamic and should be banned.

Social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook were flooded with comments from fans in the Southeast Asian nation.

“Maybe the religious leaders are just fans of Liverpool?” quipped one supporter on Twitter.

So, Muslim Man Utd fans are not allowed to wear their favourite team jersey anymore in Malaysia.

However, there’s a solution. Introducing the Devil-free Manchester United 2010/2011 Home Kit with an alternate team crest, altered just for the sake of Malaysian market.



This jersey is definitely suitable for Malaysian market as the team crest no longer have the emblem of Devil.

And here’s the alternate club logo for Manchester United for Malaysian market. Hopefully Malaysian Muslim fans can continue to support this great club. Glory Glory Man United!
