For those who know me -or this blog-, you know by now my interest in the adidas-Nike feud. One of the best stories in sports and sports marketing are written by these 2 brands. During training , Xabi Alonso and Cristiano Ronaldo are argueing as to which brand is the best. Take a look.
Cristiano Ronaldo, one of Nike’s icon and Xabi Alonso an adidas player are having an argument about which is the best brand: adidas or Nike.
Cristiano Ronaldo: How can you compare Adidas to Nike?
Xabi Alonso: Adidas is history.
Xabi: Nike are basketball shoes
Cristiano Ronaldo: Basketball?
Cristiano Ronaldo: Those boots are best?
Cristiano Ronaldo: Yes
Cristiano Ronaldo: These boots are top for a top player
Xabi: Top but are plastic
Cristiano Ronaldo: Plastic?
Xabi: Yes Plastic
Xabi: Nike football are 3 days
Xabi: Madrid is Adidas. Adidas is 70 years in football, not like nike who have been around 3 days…
I obviously don’t know if and how adidas and Nike will respond or comment, but it’s interesting that both players are backing up their sponsors. How fantastic if a Puma player had chipped in!
