Two months ago, this publication was granted access to an exclusive look at the new adidas Predator boot advertisement airing on worldwide television. The boot was debuted by two locally-based players, Thabiso Monyane and Olisa Ndah, and is worn by renowned footballers such as Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham and Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Delmain Faver from Soccer Laduma had the opportunity to speak with Orlando Pirates centre-back Ndah, who unfortunately couldn’t showcase the new boot at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations due to an injury that prevented him from representing the Nigerian national team. It would have been an intriguing matchup against South Africa’s attackers, whom he faces regularly in the DStv Premiership, as his team would have faced Bafana Bafana in the semifinals.
Ndah expressed his admiration for the new boot, highlighting its lighter weight and improved texture compared to its predecessor. He also mentioned his pleasure with the intricate details on the boot, expressing his overall satisfaction with the product.
