Neymar is involved in a new extra-sport affair Neymar is involved in a new extra-sport affair
After 13 years of collaboration, Neymar and Nike had broken their contract in August 2020, without really giving a reason. Almost a year after the facts, the brand with the comma explained this choice by indicating that the Brazilian number 10 had refused to cooperate with an investigation, after an employee accused him of having sexually assaulted her.
“Nike has terminated its partnership with the athlete because he refused to cooperate in a good faith investigation into credible allegations of wrongdoing made by an employee,”– it said in the statement sent to AFP.
Nike also says that “the investigation was not conclusive”.
On the side of Neymar, his spokesman reacted by explaining that the two parties had separated for commercial reasons.
