A LOVED Brentford fan has been accidentally sent a dozen ‘top secret’ Premier League balls.
Miki Morisson was expecting a hoodie when he found Nike prototypes in a box dropped off by courier service DPD.
The 27-year-old electrician said: “When I saw that they were Premier League standard I was pretty excited.
“My hoodie was only a few pounds but these balls are just priceless.”
Four boxes of Test balls for next season had been sent to Brentford’s training ground near Miki’s home in Hounslow, west London.
They have been specially embossed with Nike Flight 2023-2024.
Club bosses and Nike were distraught after one went missing.
The mix-up is believed to have happened when a sticker with Miki’s address was placed on the box.
A Nike source said: “Losing 12 was a big concern.
“They are top secret until next season.”
Relieved club bosses collected the balls after The Sun alerted them – and Miki finally got his hoodie.
A DPD spokeswoman apologized for the mistake last night.
