Liverpoolâ€™s American kit supplier Warrior has announced the signing of Everton star Marouane Fellaini to a long-term endorsement deal, reports SportsPro.
Under the terms of the agreement, the Belgian midfielder now wears Warriorâ€™s first ever line of soccer boots called Skreamer, which he was wearing when he scored during his sideâ€™s 1-1 draw with Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend.
The announcement comes during Warriorâ€™s first season serving as the official kit supplier of Evertonâ€™s arch rivals Liverpool, with whom the company signed a record-breaking US$229.8 million, 6-year deal in January.
"I chose Warrior because my approach to the game and desire to win is the same as theirs," said Fellaini. "It's a brand that does things differently to the others and I really like that. We are a great fit and I'm excited about the chance to influence a new generation of young footballers alongside Warrior."
Ben Haworth, global sports marketing manager for Warrior Football, said of the brandâ€™s new signing: "For Warrior to sign one of the most exciting and talked about players in world football is an incredible coup.â€ť
â€śFellaini possesses everything we look for in a Warrior player; he's got flare, he has incredible power, he takes risks, he changes the game â€“ there are only a handful of players left in the sport that can truly do that. We're proud to add Marouane to our artillery."
