Backed By Messi

adidas are looking to the future as ten of world’s best young footballers are recruited to join Team Messi and wear his signature boot, the Messi15, in all competitions this season. No pressure.

After installing the Argentinian as the first player to receive his very own boot - the Messi15 - adidas have now hand picked ten young players from across the world that they're tipping for greatness and in turn are being 'Backed' by Messi. As part of the ‘BACKED BY MESSI’ campaign, these ten players will update the world on their progress by filming their own content for a series of episodes on the adidas Football YouTube channel. 

Some description

The new Team Messi recruits: Robert Kenedy (Chelsea) Maxwell Cornet (Lyon) Jeremie Boga (Rennes - on loan from Chelsea) Accursio Bentivegna (Como - on loan from Palermo) James Wilson (Man United) Timo Werner (Stuttgart) Aleksey Miranchuk (Lokomotiv Moscow) Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy) Marcos Lopes (Monaco) Khiry Shelton (New York City FC). Good luck chaps.

Which of the ten are you backing to make it to the big time?
