Diego Fore-lan swaps football for golf in new TV ad


Athletico Madrid star striker Diego Forlan took a break from the transfer speculation surrounding him to take part in a round of football-golf for a TV advert (see below) promoting the new Adidas AdiPower Predator football boots.

The Powerspine Technology in the forefoot of the boot creates maximum shooting power on the football pitch, while no doubt adding yards to his drives off the tee. The upper of the boot is made from Taurus leather, giving him that added grip for extra spin on his approach shots.

The boots, which are also worn by the likes of Robin van Persie, Nani and Kaka, are out now and retail at £154.99. To pick up your pair, visit www.matchmagstore.co.uk.

It wasn’t all fun and games for Forlan though. If you pause the video on 0.53 minutes, you’ll notice he has his left sock on his right leg, shocking!

Forlan has been linked with a move to Inter Milan as a replacement for Samuel Eto’o, who signed for Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala in a mammoth deal worth £17.9m a year after tax, making him the world’s highest-paid footballer ahead of Christiano Ronaldo.
