Ryan Bertrand showed off his special Black History Month boots during Southampton’s defeat against Chelsea.
His white cleats also included King’s famous quote: “I have a dream,” along the outside.
Black History Month occurs each year, which celebrates and pays tribute to pivotal moments of African diaspora.
And Bertrand paid his respects to King during Sunday’s clash against his former employers at St Mary’s.
But the game ended in disappointment for the England international, after the Blues eased to a 3-0 victory.
Alvaro Morata sealed the victory in the closing stages of the game, to cap a fine week for the Spanish striker in which he has netted twice.
Southampton sit in 16th spot, with Mark Hughes’ men without a home win all season.
