Arsenal star to wear custom boots in FA Cup Final tribute

Away from the world of football, one of the very biggest sports stories of 2014 has been Michael Schumacher’s horror skiing accident. The seven-time Formula One World Champion suffered his unfortunate injuries in December and has spent all of the current year in a coma. There have been some signs of recovery for the legendary racer, who is one of Germany’s finest ever sportsmen and a true global celebrity, yet his life is still in the balance. Many of his compatriots have offered messages of support and today Lukas Podolski will send his wishes towards the stricken legend by donning some very unique boots for the FA Cup Final. The special adidas footwear has the message ‘Keep fighting Michael’ emblazoned on both the left and right shoe with the stripes in the colours of the German flag. Podolski will also be hoping that his team will be able to channel the power of Schumacher to race into a lead at Wembley.
