Jele: I’m In Love With My Nitros!

Soccer-Laduma caught up with Happy Jele, Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana player recently, to see how his new adidas Nitrocharge boots were treating him. He’s response was resounding!

“The nitrocharge is the best boot I have worn so far from adidas. When I got my pair, I was so happy with the design. It’s light, it doesn’t weigh you down at all while you are running. I’m really impressed with what they have come up with. “

“As a pro I think it’s important that the boot is comfortable before anything else. For me that is most important. If it looks good but it doesn’t feel good then that isn’t going to help you or your team. However, there is nothing to complain about when it comes to the look of this boot. The colours are amazing, the design is amazing - I can honestly say I’m in love with my nitros. 

 

“I do a lot of the dirty work on the field. You’re not going to see a lot of the stuff I do on the highlights reel, but I don’t mind that. That’s my role in the team and, for players like me, it’s about putting the team first. Of course I love scoring goals, who doesn’t, and I’m not going to stop trying, but my first job is to make sure I am getting up and down that wing, make sure I’m winning my tackles and my headers, and make sure the players in front of me can do their thing knowing that I have their backs,” concluded the player.

 

And it’s no fluke that Jele loves the boot so much, nitrocharge Product Manager Michael Meinhold from adidas says the boot was specifically designed with this type of player in mind, ‘The Engine’.

 

We see this player as something of an unsung hero. He is always running, getting stuck in and pulling strings for his team. This kind of role isn’t limited to one position, it’s more of an ethos with which certain individuals play the game. Take Dani Alves and Javi Martinez, for example. Both play different positions but share qualities such as high intensity performances, tough tackling, large distances covered and both find themselves as regular parts of their respective teams’ build-up play when goals are scored,” said Meinhold.
