Arab Champions Cup MVP Trophy Is Based on Adidas Predator Absolute 2006 Cleats
After being named the player of the match (MVP) in the Arab Club Champions Cup 2023 final, he was awarded a golden boot trophy. A closer look at the trophy, however, reveals that it is not just any boot, but the Adidas Predator 2006 Absolute, the same cleat worn by Zinedine Zidane in the 2006 World Cup final.
