Brazilian professional footballer, Neymar has sealed an endorsement deal with Puma, the German company made the announcement on Saturday, two weeks after the Brazilian superstar left his long-time sponsor Nike.
The announcements reads;
“Welcome to the fam @neymarjr #KingIsBack” Puma tweeted alongside a photo of the Paris Saint-Germain striker, kitted out in the sportswear giant’s clothes.
Neymar also made a confirmation of his new role as Puma’s poster boy in an open letter posted on social media. He wrote;
“I grew up watching videos of great football legends such as Pele, Cruyff, Eusebio and Maradona….who each played in Puma.
“For these reasons, from today onward, I have the honour to unite with the brand that helped the biggest legends of football become what they are,”
Although, neither Neymar nor Puma gave the details of the length of the contract or how much it was worth, there is a speculation that the 28 year old would sign with Puma since his endorsement deal ended with Nike, the company that had sponsored him since the time he was a 13 year old prodigy.
