Marouane Fellaini Is Suing New Balance For A Bizarre Reason

Marouane Fellaini Is Suing New Balance For A Bizarre Reason

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is suing sportswear giants New Balance for £2.1 million after claiming their boots damaged his feet.

The towering Belgian was once an ambassador for the American apparel company and signed a four-year deal to wear their products back in 2012, which the Daily Mail reckon was worth around £600,000 per year.

Fellaini has divided opinions among United fans since his £27.5 million arrival from Everton, in 2013. We doubt a change of boots is going to change that, mind. Images: PA

Fellaini's legal team have issued a writ saying that they are suing for 'loss of employment, inconvenience and impact on performance' due to the damage the boots are claimed to have inflicted on the 29-year-old's feet during matches for the Red Devils.






Moreover, Fellaini claims the United kit men would be forced to steam and stretch his New Balance cleats before every game, before he was eventually forced to abandon wearing them and switch to Nike boots during last season.

Personally, we've never worn any New Balance boots, so we have no idea how comfortable they are, but what do you make of Fellaini's complaints?
