Adidas apologizes to Man United’s Millie Turner for kit launch error


Manchester United shirt maker Adidas has responded to a marketing error that saw him confuse two footballers.

The image of defender Millie Turner was featured on the marketing campaign which saw the German sports company launch the all new home kit for Manchester United, but they mistakenly put her former teammate Amy’s name in the image in place.

Amy left Manchester United earlier this summer to go to the United States with Orlando Pride, while Millie has been with the Red Devils for three seasons now.

On top of that, Millie Turner has been an Adidas athlete for two years, which makes the mistake all the more embarrassing.

The 25-year-old is a household name among fans of the Women’s Super League and has informed her 33,000 Twitter followers of the error.

“Considering I’ve been at Manchester United for 3 years and an adidas athlete for 2… You’d like to think Adidas would get my name right,” she tweeted on Thursday.

It took a few hours, but Adidas finally responded by apologizing to the Manchester United star, offering a gesture of goodwill to her and her fans.

“Millie, we messed up and we’re gutted,” Adidas replied.

“You are part of the adidas family and we want to make amends. Let’s give some new shirts to your biggest fans. Let us know who and we’ll deliver them to you.”

As of this writing, Turner has yet to publicly acknowledge Adidas’ offer in any way.
