Throwback Thursday

Batshuayi Seals Win For Chelsea In Old School adidas Boots

Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi proved to be Chelsea’s hero in their narrow 1-0 win over Ajax Amsterdam on Wednesday evening.

Interestingly, ‘Bat Man’ had a #throwback moment when he donned retro adidas boots to slot home for the Blues.

The boot in question was the adidas F50 Adizero TRX FG. True football fans will know this, as it was made famous by none other than FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

The Argentine embarked on his record-breaking 2010/11 season while donning the popular boots.

adidas have had numerous variants of the boot over the years, though it’s clear that Batshuayi held onto this special pair, which proved to be a good omen for the 26-year-old.

Check it out in the gallery above.
