Bertrand and Forster star in Southampton's snazzy kit reveal

To help launch their 2017-18 kits, Southampton have created a cartoon series in which a gang of their players help to unveil the new designs.

The mini-series stars Ryan Bertrand, Fraser Forster, Maya Yoshida and Manolo Gabbiadini as a crime-fighting quartet tasked with retrieving the strips after they were stolen by an as-yet unnamed foe.

There's even a little guest cameo from Saints legend Matt Le Tissier to keep an eye out for.

Can it be merely coincidence that the Saints' new kits have been pilfered on the very day that Claude Puel was dismissed as head coach?

Only time (i.e. episode two) will tell.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
