A Sunderland fan has been slammed for his actions after a pair of boots, allegedly belonging to Adam Johnson, appeared on eBay: available for purchase.
Johnson represented the Black Cats between 2012 and 2016, after signing from Manchester City, with whom he won a Premier League and an FA Cup title.
However, Johnson's time at Sunderland was cut short in 2016 – when he was sentenced to six years in prison after he confessed to one count of sexual activity with a child and one count of grooming.
And now a pair of boots from the disgraced former Premier League player have emerged online.
The boots in question are the Adidas X 15.1, and the description read: "Rare Adam Johnson's match-worn boots v Newcastle United in Sunderland's 3-0 victory at the Stadium of Light 25/10/15."
"When Adam scored a penalty in this famous game.
"Fitted custom size 7.25, not sure if this is actual size or it's in German."
Sunderland ran out 3-0 victors during the game in question, and Johnson opened the scoring from the spot just before half-time; Billy Jones and Steven Fletcher added to Newcastle's embarrassment before the night was over.
The 15/16 campaign was the last time the Tyne-Wear derby was hosted in the top flight, and the sides last met in 2019 during the EFL trophy.
Johnson, on the other hand, was sentenced to six years in prison, however, he only served half his sentence and was released in 2019: yet to return to professional football.
