Marouane Fellaini to sue New Balance

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is suing New Balance for £2.1million as he claims their boots are causing ‘considerable damage’ to his feet.
The Belgium international penned a four-year deal with the sportswear giants back in 2012 but has taken them to court following the pain he claims the boots have caused his feet.
He has now walked away from the £600,000-a-year deal — changing to Nike footwear before last season — and, according The Sun, appeared in London’s High Court to demand damages.

The 29-year-old issued a writ which stated the ‘poor quality’ boots needed to be ‘steamed and stretched’ by the kitman before the midfielder was able to play in them.
The United enforcer claimed his feet were subjected to ‘considerable damage’ when he wore the boots and he ‘repeatedly communicated his frustration’ to the manufacturers.

Fellaini’s legal team have said new balance 410 womens that they are also suing for ‘loss of employment, inconvenience and impact on performance’ due to the damage the boots are claimed to have inflicted.In response, the boot-maker’s claim in court papers that their client, Fellaini, once described the boots as ‘perfect’ and ordered 12 more pairs.
