Marouane Fellaini suing New Balance for £2m in boots dispute

Postautor: Porsrun » 30 lis 2017, o 08:39


Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is prepared for a high court battle against sportswear giant New Balance over his old ทางเข้า sbo football boots, claiming they were so poorly constructed the logo peeled off. Fellaini is suing American brand New Balance for £2m in damages after it terminated his contract prematurely. The 30-year-old alleged the bespoke boots they supplied him with were “defective” and hurt his feet, according to documents submitted to the high court. The Belgian said they had to be “steamed and stretched” by a United kit man before they would fit. A bitter breakdown in relations between Fellaini and New Balance serves to emphasise the increasingly commercial world of elite sport where what could be viewed as an easily resolved problem has resulted in ทางเข้า sbo legal proceedings. Before football became a multibillion-pound business every player on the pitch wore identikit black boots but a kaleidoscope of different colours, brands and styles are now available with sponsorship deals often worth seven figures. Wayne Rooney receives £1.2m a season from Nike for wearing their boots while Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo signed a lifetime deal with Nike last year worth £800m. Fellaini’s claim is that New Balance terminated the boot contract unlawfully part way through the season. But New Balance counters it was entitled to do so because he played ทางเข้า sbo without their logos on his boots. In his defence, Fellaini stated that the quality of the boots was so poor that the logos peeled off. There is no date set for the high court hearing but if a judge is required to rule on the case they may have to examine a string of often badly constructed late-night WhatsApp messages between Fellaini and New Balance staff. Acting on Fellaini’s behalf, barrister Ruth den Besten, who represents Rosalina Investments, outlined his complaints. “The football boots supplied by New Balance were of poor quality and caused considerable damage to Mr Fellaini’s feet,” she said.
