PICTURE: Luis Suarez has a secret weapon for Manchester United clash

Luis Suarez will be wearing a piece of innovative new kit when Liverpool head to Manchester United next month.

Sunday March 16 marks arguably Liverpool’s biggest game of the season as they head to Old Trafford looking for three points which will push them closer to the Champions League ahead of arch rivals Manchester United.

Luis Suarez will be one of Liverpool’s main attacking threats during the game and he has a secret weapon; new knitted boots which have been designed by Adidas.

The boots are a unique piece of sports engineering which have been described as ‘like socks’ by Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta.

Suarez will be the first lucky soul to wear the new invention from the popular sports brand in the fixture against United, which is designed to give players the same sort of response to if they were playing bare foot.

They are also being tipped to give players extra speed which is worrying for any of Manchester United’s central defenders because Suarez is one of the quickest forwards in Europe.

It will be fascinating to see if they improve his performance in a match which could well and truly put United out of the race for a top four finish.
