Al-Nassr prized asset, Cristiano Ronaldo, has breached his contract with Nike by wearing Adidas shin pads during his club’s latest friendly game against Celta Vigo, SportsBible reports.
The Spanish side had beaten Al-Alamy 5-0 in the game.
The 38-year-old Portugal captain played the first half of the match only and the game was goalless after the first 45 minutes.
The camera as well as many fans spotted that Ronaldo wore Adidas shin pads during the game.
This prompted controversy regarding whether the Portugal captain breached his contract with Nike in the process.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been a Nike athlete since the start of his professional career back in 2003.
The Portugal captain reportedly penned a whopping £1 billion lifetime contract with the sportswear brand back in 2016.
SPORTBible reports that the former Real Madrid and Juventus man previously wore an Adidas jumper in one of his most famous Nike adverts.
The logo, however, was cropped out of the advert, replacing it with a Nike logo.
