Ruud van Nistelrooy Gifted Insane Mash-Up Shirt To Celebrate His Career
Ruud van Nistelrooy has been handed an incredible mash-up football top featuring shirts from all the teams he turned out for in his illustrious career.
An absolute fox in the box, Van Nistelrooy scored 349 goals in 592 games in a decorated career at the top level. He won the Champions League Golden Boot award on three occasions and is widely viewed as one of the most deadly strikers in the 21st century.
And having made special mashed-up shirts for Wesley Sneijder and Jari Litmanen, 'Blood in Blood out' created one for van Nistelrooy and he was more than happy to put it on.
The collar is that of German club Hamburg, while it is also features shirts from Real Madrid, Manchester United (with the Premier League lettering and numbering), PSV Eindhoven, Malaga, Heerenveen and his first employers, Den Bosch.
There's no denying that van Nistelrooy's best days came in Manchester United colours. After joining from PSV in a £19 million move, he bagged an incredible 150 goals in 219 appearances before ultimately falling out of favour with Sir Alex Ferguson and heading to Madrid.
He hung up his boots with Malaga in 2012 and is now back at old club PSV, managing the Under 19's side after Mark van Bommel stepped up to manage the first-team.
