Fiorentina’s Adrian Mutu to Sport Mizuno Football Boots
Striker Adrian Mutu has recently signed a football boot deal with Mizuno that will see him wearing the Japansese made football boots for the next four years. Mutu is best remembered in the UK for his time at Chelsea which ended with a public falling out with manager Jose Mourinho. Since then, Mutu has proficiently rebuilt his career, and is currently enjoying a revival of form and fortune at the Serie A club Fiorentina. Mutu’s run of goals has seen him create a formidable scoring partnership with Italian striker Luca Toni which has been at the heart of Fiorentina’s recent good results.
The multi-tattooed striker is no stranger to the Mizuno brand of football boot, having worn Mizuno from the 2000 season and into the next season out of personal choice. But this time he is wearing the Mizuno football boot as part of a sponsorship deal, which Mizuno hope will help to increase the brand’s visibility and exposure in the Italian league.
About Mizuno Football Boots
Mizuno was founded in 1906 in Osaka originally as an importer of American golf and baseball equipment. Over the next century Mizuno has grown into a global company with interests in a myriad of sporting fields.
Mizuno entered the football boot market in 1997 with its innovative Mizuno Wave featuring patented technology to provide maximum stability and cushioning while keeping the football boot light flexible and balanced. Current products in the Mizuno football boot range include the Wave Shinken, Morelia, MRL Club and MRL Classic.
Our Verdict: As sponsorship deals go, we can’t expect Mizuno to compete with the might of Nike, Adidas, Puma and Reebok for the big name players (and Gary Neville!), but if Mutu continues his scoring run and leads Romania into the Euros, this could well prove to be an astute and shrewd signing by the men from Japan.
