Diego Forlan has admitted for the first time that he was sacked from Manchester United for wearing the wrong football boots.
The Uruguayan and Atletico Madrid striker, who these days wears the adidas F50i, was a United player between 2002 and 2004 making over 60 league appearances.
Forlan currently uses the adidas F50i
But his time at Old Trafford came to an abrupt end when manager Sir Alex Ferguson caught him wearing inappropriate football boots.
Speaking to the official Champions League magazine, Forlan explained:
Ferguson wanted me to play with high studs, the interchangeable ones that suit wet pitches. But I feel more comfortable in low ones. I agreed to change boots, but I didn’t. Against Chelsea, I slipped in front of goal and wasted a chance.
Afterwards, I rushed to the dressing room to change boots. Ferguson caught me. He grabbed the boots and threw them. That was my last game for United.
survez yu rite bruv loooolllz alwaiz lisen 2 ya manager
thats cruel Fergie, but maybe Fergie was right.
And actually he banned the SG bladed stud, wow !!!
thats why you listen to your coach.especially at that high level.
thats why you listen to your coach. especially at that high level. i guess youve learned mister forlan
damn! if this is true, i’ve severely underestimated how much studs matter to pro players and even their coaches as well.
IT suits him right for not listening to his manager. That is the problem with “star” players these days, they think they know everything and are not prepared to listen to what their coaches have to say.
but if he felt more comfortable in his low studs then surely its his choice. maybe high studs gave him blisters or something.
i have never seen ronaldinho or messi plays with sg stud …
sad story… xD
players should pick their boots
