Sergio Ramos leaves Nike for Adidas

28 Nov 2020

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has abandoned the “swoosh” for the “three stripes” in what will be deemed a monumental win for Adidas in its battle with Nike for football’s biggest names.

Ramos, of course, is often seen in the Adidas-branded Real Madrid shirt and training gear. But in a photo published on his Instagram page, the veteran defender has been captured wearing Adidas boots for the first time after 10 years with Nike.

In September it was revealed that Ramos had decided to end his relationship with the American sports apparel maker, prompting a battle for his signature which included Adidas, Under Armor, Puma and New Balance.

In the end, the 34-year-old center-back opted to sign with the German brand that already has a long-term contract with Madrid and he has now started wearing the three-striped boots.

Ramos joins team mates Marcelo, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Tottenham loanee Gareth Bale on Adidas’s books, as well as the likes of Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, Mohamed Salah, Manuel Neuer, James Rodriguez and Roberto Firmino.
