David Beckham has gone back in time to mark the relaunch of the Predator Boots and painted his own tongue red to publicise the iconic classic.
The launch coincides with the former Manchester United superstar’s birthday after he turned 42 on Tuesday and reveals the adidas ‘Champagne Pack’ which pays tribute to the colour that Beckham wore when he scored his famous goal for England against Greece.
Beckham became a global icon wearing the famous boots during his memorable career and has once again teamed up with adidas to bring back the Predator Manias.
The boots stopped being made soon after Beckham announced his retirement, but one of the best selling items in the history of football looks certain to attract big interest once again and will catch the eye of youngsters with the bright red tongue.
Beckham signed a lifetime sponsorship deal with adidas back in 2003 worth £124m and has certainly proved value for money with some unforgettable moments during his playing career.
After scoring from the halfway line against Wimbledon back in 1996, few can forget his amazing free-kick for England back in 2001 against Greece at Old Trafford which helped his country qualify for the World Cup in Japan and South Korea.
The United captain went on to make over 100 appearances for England and scored some amazing goals for both club and country.
Beckham might have hung up his boots back in 2013 at the age of 38, but is still one of the biggest names in football and was proud to be part of relaunching one of the world’s most instantly-recognisable boots.
