Arsenal & Puma Combine For World First
EXCLUSIVE – Arsenal and Puma go against the grain to develop World’s first left-footed football.
Arsenal and Puma have combined footballing forces to produce a world first; the Left-Footed evoPOWER Football.
This revolutionary new ball is said to increase the accuracy, power and precision of a left-footed player – well, not any left footed player, I mean I think Justin Edinburgh would still have struggled…
As Arsene Wenger has more left footed players than the Premier League average, Puma and Arsenal felt it would be beneficial to devise this latest in footballing technology.
“Something revolutionary!” – Mesut Özil
A handful of the Gunners’ biggest stars, including Santi Cazorla, Mesut Özil, Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin, put the new ball through its paces at London Colney, to great effect:
“It’s unbelievable!” said Santi. Right-footed right back, Bellerin, said: “It’s a bit tricky to use on your right-foot but it instantly improved my left-foot.”
PUMA’s Senior Product Line Manager for Teamsport Accessories, Keith Woods (no relation to the right-footed ex England goalie, Chris) said: “This football will not only improve the overall game of left and two footed players, it is also the perfect training aid for the right-footed player’s weaker left-foot. A left-footed player finally has the benefits that a right-footed player has always had with footballs to date.”
“With Arsenal’s evoPOWER I will score more goals!” – Nacho Monreal
Many will remain sceptical about the Left-Footed evoPOWER, but you only need to watch the footage (above) of Aaron Ramsey miscuing a right-footed pass that he would normally hit straight in his sleep to see how this ball is designed to benefit only lefties!
Özil was caught on camera skewing a shot with his weak right foot miles wide, although rumours that he was playing the ‘fool’, doing his ‘Gervinho’ party piece for shits ‘n’ giggles are yet to be substantiated.
One can only imagine the scenes if this had been around when the likes of lefties such as Stefan Malz, Pascal Cygan and Kaba Diawara graced Highbury!
