PUMA follows its recent signings of France and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry (now with the New York Red Bulls), Argentina and Manchester city forward Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero, and Atlético Madrid and Colombia striker Radamel Falcao with that of Spanish international and FC Barcelona midfielder Cesc FÃ bregas.
After being spotted in PUMA boots at Barca’s training session on Monday, the 2010 FIFA World Cup winner announced his deal with PUMA via his Twitter account and YouTube on Thursday evening.
According to PUMA:
You may have heard a few things flying around the rumour mill about a certain ex-Arsenal midfielder? Well, we are delighted to finally announce that the Barcelona and Spanish midfield General Cesc FÃ bregas is the 3rd player to make their big move of the summer by officially signing for PUMA!
There has been a lot of speculation recently surrounding the white boots FÃ bregas has been seen training in. We are happy to reveal that after rigorous testing, Fabregas has decided he will be sporting the brand-new PUMA PowerCat 1.12 boots from now on. Cesc will be the flagship player for the PowerCats and will wear them exclusively for the next month. His first game in the new boots will be in this weekend’s match against Sporting Gijon, so be sure to look out for some nifty footwork from Barca and PUMA’s latest superstar. Fabregas broke the news to the footballing world via a recorded message he did on his phone at a PUMA Shoot. The PowerCat 1.12 will be available instore from December 1st. For more information on the PowerCat 1.12 come back to the PUMA.com/Football website on Monday 3rd October.
It has been an amazing time recently here at PUMA with the addition of Sergio ‘Kun’ Agüero and Falcão. With a number of the world’s top strikers wearing PUMA, we thought they could do with a bit of midfield support and the addition of Cesc really adds to the growing list of global superstars adopting the PUMA brand. We’re confident we could pull together a 5-aside team to take on the best of the best ;).
Cesc FÃ bregas said; “I am very happy about this new partnership with PUMA and really looking forward to wearing the new PowerCat 1.12 on pitch this weekend. This boot gives me a lot of confidence to compete physically in midfield, which is obviously very important. I need a boot that I am comfortable in, and which gives me the protection and power to play at my best. This has been a great summer for me, signing again for Barcelona and now for PUMA. This brand has a great attitude, and PUMA has some exciting plans for me that I’m thrilled to be a part of. I’m looking forward to a long partnership with them.”
