Update Available! Nike Embarrassingly Forget to Take Down Image of Neymar in Barca Kit

Thursday August 24th, 2017

Sportswear giants Nike have made the embarrassing mistake of leaving an image of Neymar in a Barcelona kit on their website.

The Brazilian left the Camp Nou for Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer for a world-record fee of £198m. But Nike still have him up as the poster boy for the 2017/18 Barca home kit on their website.

There's still a quote from Neymar, which reads: “Pulling on the new Barça kit for the first time creates a mixture of pride and optimism for the season ahead. It looks and feels like a modern uniform of sport.”

Seems a bit ridiculous now, doesn't it?

Fortunately, though, PSG have Nike as a shirt sponsor as well, so there isn't a conflict of interest on that front, but someone should really ask them to remove it.
