Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

Tony Pulis blinded fans with his bright sneakers as West Brom defeated Hull City 1-0.

Is that the new West Brom boss, or an adidas model? It was certainly a question on many a West Brom fan's lips after this dapper bloke wandered out at The Hawthorns today dressed head-to-toe in the German manufacturer.

Of course they sponsor West Brom, so it was no surprise to see that Tony Pulis was decked out in the three stripes.

But what got the most attention were his trainers. Football managers tend to be unassuming in what they wear on their feet. But Pulis likes to go in style and his flush white pair of adidas ZK Flux's put some NBA players to shame in the cleat department.

It was even noticed by Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker, who will likely mention it this evening.

Away from the touchline and Pulis would have been pleased with the end result for West Brom. While in charge of Crystal Palace last term he became an expert at winning games 1-0 and that was again the case today as a Saido Berahino goal settled matters against Hull City.

Lets just hope that those trainers looked that clean when he left the ground.
