Edgar Davids made his return to competitive football last night, starting in Crystal Palace’s Carling Cup game against Portsmouth.
It was a pretty big shock when we heard last week that the former Ajax, Juventus, Barcelona, Inter Milan and AC Milan man (what a r'©sum'© that is, by the way!) would be signing for Crystal Palace, but for us oldies that remember Davids in his younger years, the real surprise is what was on his feet!
Thanks to his trademark glasses and dreadlocks, Davids was one of the most recognisable players on the planet and starred in some of Nike’s best ads in the 90’s and early 00’s – including cult favourites ‘The Cage’, ‘Good vs Evil’ and ‘Soccer vs Ninjas’.
We can only guess that ‘The Pitbull’ was quite taken by the new colourway as the Black and Orange combo on these football boots definitely brings a bit of ‘Dutch Magic’ to the Crystal Palace strip!
