The Manchester derby is always a must-see occasion, and it’s one of those emotional times when an entire city is divided, and yet still united in their common interest for the match.
Both clubs may be out of the title race and so this derby may not match the title-deciding significance of previous derbies, but with both clubs enduring tough seasons in varying ways, this is could actually be one of the most important for a few years. Whoever wins can dream of Champions League football, whoever loses will be under huge pressure to make sure they qualify for the big European competition over the next few weeks.
Ahead of the big game, PUMA has today unveiled Sergio Aguero’s evoSPEED Derby Fever boots delivering them in style in a customised 3.8 litre Nissan GT-R.
The boots are part of the ‘Derby Fever’ series, a series of boot designs made especially for some of the world’s biggest derbies, and “which celebrates the the epic meetings between local football foes.” Aguero’s special boots are designed not just in City sky blue, but delivered to City striker with the speed he himself is known.
The customised car had the boots personally delivered by Yianni Charalambous, owner and founder of car customising company, Yiannimize.
Travelling from London to Manchester the car stopped off at iconic spots in the city including Old Trafford, The Etihad Stadium, Salford Lads Club and Manchester Town Hall before being hand delivered to the man himself.
We know that this derby on Thursday night could well be decisive in the race for the top four, and it remains to be seen if the boots will help Aguero to be decisive in the game – but they’ll certainly add to the spectacle.
After all, this is a big occasion and Aguero is a big player. As a goalscorer, he will be hoping to fill his new boots.
