Rooney Says Boots Are Not To Blame

Rooney Says Boots Are Not To Blame

Wayne Rooney insists his new light-weight boots were not responsible for the foot injury which is threatening his World Cup dream.

His new-design Nike 'Total 90 Supremacy' boots were thought to be too light for today's type of football, and he was wearing them when he sustained a broken metatarsal at Chelsea.

The boots are not yet available in the shops, but are considered revolutionary by the sportswear company.

Rooney: 'As soon as my foot came up off the floor I felt something pop in my foot and I probably knew straight away that I'd broken it.

'I don't think my football boots had anything to do with the injury. Before we actually wear the boots they get tested out to make sure they're suitable for playing in. The boots have been checked out and the boots are fine.

'It was an impact injury and there was a lot of pressure on my foot. If you watch the video again you can see that's how it happened.'

I can't say that i believe that to be honest. Its only been in the last 3-4 years that anyone has had a metatarsal break. And, i'm sure it's linked to the lightweight boots they wear. He's obviously gonna say that isn't he. Nike have got £10 million riding on people buying them cos Rooney wears them.
