Chelsea won the Cup, Hiddink has returned to Russia, Manchester United can go on their holiday’s celebrating a treble – domestic season done and dusted. Well, not quite.
There remains the question surrounding Jose Bosingwa’s boots worn during the FA Cup final victory over Everton.
The Portuguese international has worn adidas competitively all season although there has been the odd occasion where he’s been pictured in training wearing the Umbro Speciali.
As the build up to the final intensified, Bosingwa wore his adiPure II’s as recently as last Wednesday but by Friday, he was once again in the Speciali, the boot he ultimately decided to wear in the big game, as did his team mate John Terry though he had a fully customised version.
Additionally, Bosingwa looked to have removed or blacked out the Umbro logos from the boots, though the imprinted logo on the sole was clearly visible throughout the match.
Bosingwa in action in adidas earlier this season
Footy Boots asked both adidas and Umbro for reaction to Bosingwa’s actions and adidas have been in touch with the following quote:
Jose Bosingwa is not sponsored by adidas but chose to wear adiPure boots during a successful season for Chelsea FC.
So there you have it. Mystery explained.
