Neymar recently announced that he is ending his 15-year partnership with Nike to start a new journey with Puma. Puma is a German international brand that manufactures and sells sportswear and accessories like sports shoes, sports jerseys, tracksuits, and many more. They even sponsor many big teams such as Manchester City, Italy National football team, and so on. The Brazilian posted on his twitter saying that before each season he thinks of doing something new and creative. He often thinks about his past like how he joined this sport to create history like some legends namely Pele, Maradona, and many others.
Puma also posted on its social media and welcomed Neymar by the hashtags like ‘The King is Back’ and ‘Welcome to the family Neymar Jr’. The PSG forward was associated with Nike for 15 years before this. He also had his own section with his own Nike logo. It is known that only four people knew about this deal that just happened including Neymar and his father. This is not a deal that took place in a day but took several months before the signing of the contract. Puma has already come up with a logo for Neymar and it is very unique. Many stars and footballers who are already associated with Puma welcomed Neymar through their social media.
