The new kit pays tribute to the reggae artist, who played at the club's Dalymount Park in 1980, and Marley's son has been full of praise for the tribute, in spite of an array of divided opinions following its launch last week.

The Bob-Marley emblazoned jersey of Bohemians FC in Dublin, Ireland has caused quite a stir since its release last week, with people both scrambling to buy it, as well as rushing to mock the design. 

However one high-proval approvee of the shirt has aired his views on the design; Bob Marley's son Ky-Mani Marley has hailed the new concept as the "dopest shirt I've ever seen". 

In an interview with 'BBC News Northern Ireland', the son of the late reggae star was in raptures over the tribute, simply saying: ""I love it."

Bohemian FC has since sold out its pre-orders for the jersey, but is has also assured fans that a new batch will be ready for the second week of December.

Chairman of Bohemian FC supporters club, Mark Moloney, has admitted that he is unsure of the design himself, but has lauded the person responsible for the idea. 

Moloney told 'BBC News Northern Ireland': "It's definitely a masterstroke by the club from a PR perspective and it's got a massive amount of interest in the club, which is amazing," he said. We have some of the lads at the club who are not Bohemians fans and they have pre-ordered the kit."

Among the huge news outlets to produce features on the kit are 'Sports Illustrated' based in the United States, Spanish newspaper Marca, and English based corporation BBC News. 

The release of the kit also sparked a social media craze in which various clubs produced parodies of the kit based on their own celebrity followings.
