Ronaldo in danger of losing Nike, EA deals
Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo has been involved with more than 70 different styles of Nike boots since bursting on to the footballing scene 15 years ago.
But it appears that this long-term partnership could be facing an abrupt end following the recently resurfaced rape allegations against Ronaldo.
In light of the ongoing investigation, the US sportswear giants released an official statement saying, “We are deeply concerned by the disturbing allegations and will continue to closely monitor the situation.”
And they were not the only sponsors to do so as EA Sports followed suit with a statement which read, “We have seen the concerning report that details allegations against Cristiano Ronaldo. We are closely monitoring the situation, as we expect cover athletes and ambassadors to conduct themselves in a manner that is consistent with EA’s values.”
The 33-year-old star also has major endorsement deals with Herbalife, American Tourister and Tag Heuer among others.
