Anelka – From F50 to Mercurial ?

Dean Ariola

Nicolas Anelka has graced pitches all over Europe as he moved between the likes of PSG, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, Fenerbahçe, Bolton Wanderers and Chelsea throughout his illustrious career.

He has also tried an experience in China with Shanghai Shenhua, and the French forward now is seemingly set to switch between the most famous ‘speed’ football boots too.



Anelka has been an adidas man for quite some time now, favouring the F50 adiZero, yet he has been training for his new side Juventus with the brand new Mercurial Vapor by Nike.

Therefore, we may hypothesise that the Old Lady’s signing has been influenced by former teammate Didier Drogba to make this boot choice and make his venture into Italian football with the exciting Sunset incarnation.
