Antonio Rüdiger's Shocking Nike Tiempo Injury Pictures

Following Chelsea's midweek win over Swansea, to which he contributed a gold, Chelsea's Antonio Rüdiger and teammate Michy Batshuayi shared pictures of an odd injury the German defender sustained during the game. A big thank you goes to everyone who shared this story, including @raull.11 over on Instagram!



On the pictures we can see Antonio Rüdiger's left boot, a Nike Tiempo Legend VII, and foot, with the former showing a triangular hole in the forefoot area, likely the result of a Swansea player stepping onto it. The stud went also right through Rüdiger's socks and caused damage to his foot.



Captioned "nike what is this??", the pictures aren't great for the brand which has had to deal with a fair amount of criticism regarding the durability of its boots and the Tiempo in particular.

Thankfully, Rüdiger was able to complete the game, although the match pictures suggest that the injury only happened after the 55th minute goal he scored to sink the Welsh club.

Would this have happened with a good old-fashioned boot? Has anything like this happened to you or one of your teammates? Drop us a line below.
