Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr. has severed ties with Nike after a 15 year relationship. The international star will be taking his talents to PUMA where he will be sporting the iconic KING football boots.
Notable Quotes: “I grew up watching videos of great football legends such as Pelé, Cruyff, Matthäus, Eusébio and Maradona. These were the KINGs of the pitch, the KINGs of my sport. I wish to bring back the legacy that those athletes created on the pitch. They each played in PUMA, and each of them created their magic in The KING. Every time I lace my boots, my KING boots, I will do anything to achieve all of my dreams to honor my name and that of all those great ones who wore the KING before me. This will be my PUMA history. The KING is back!” – Neymar Jr via Twitter
“Neymar Jr. joining our PUMA Family is fantastic. He is one of the best players in the world and extremely influential for the global football and youth culture. We are very excited and look forward to working with him both on and off the pitch.” – PUMA CEO Bjørn Gulden
