NIKE cuts Neymar loose after alleged s.e.xual scandal. The Brazilian international had a lucrative £78.6m sponsorship deal with Nike, which was due to run until 2022, but ended his partnership with the American brand last September before signing a money-spinning deal to become the new face of Puma.

Nike have announced they sacked Neymar Jnr last year after he ‘refused to co-operate’ in an internal s.e.xual assault investigation involving himself and an employee.

Nike did not reveal why they dropped Neymar who they had first signed as a 13-year-old, but have now revealed the premature separation came about following an investigation into allegations that the 29-year-old had s.e.xually assaulted a female employee.

Nike confirmed the investigation was ‘inconclusive’ but parted ways with Neymar after he ‘refused to cooperate in a good faith investigation of credible allegations of wrongdoing by an employee’. A statement from Nike read:

Nike was deeply disturbed by s.e.xual assault allegations made by one of our own employees against Neymar Jr.

The alleged incident occurred in 2016 and was officially reported to Nike in 2018. The employee came forward to share her experience in a forum created by Nike leadership to afford a safe environment in which current and former employees could confidentially share their experiences and concerns…

The investigation was inconclusive. No single set of facts emerged that would enable us to speak substantively on the matter. It would be inappropriate for Nike to make an accusatory statement without being able to provide supporting facts.

Nike ended its relationship with the athlete because he refused to cooperate in a good faith investigation of credible allegations of wrongdoing by an employee.

However, the former Barcelona star vigorously denies the s.e.xual assault allegations. The PSG star’s spokesperson in a statement said Neymar and Nike had ended their 16-year association for commercial reasons.
