The tough-tackling Norwich City midfielder posted a video on his @Tettinho86 Instagram account to show fans his eye-catching green boots.

One boot bears the flag of the 30-year-old's native Ghana and the other the flag of Norway, the country the popular Canaries battler represented in international football. One boot also has the words 'Milan 30.06.14', believed to represent the birth date of Tettey's son.

The former Rennes midfielder was born in Accra, the capital of Ghana, but moved to the town of Bodø in northern Norway, north of the Arctic Circle, at the age of 13.

He then began his professional career with Rosenborg and went on to score three goals in 34 games for Norway, before announcing his international retirement earlier this month due to his body struggling with the physical strain of life in the Championship.

Tettey has made 33 appearances for Norwich this season, with his combative style seeing him pick up 11 yellow cards and have to miss three games through suspension during the campaign. In total he has made 146 appearances for City, scoring six goals.
