“I grew up watching videos of great football legends such as Pelé, Cruyff, Matthäus, Eusébio and Maradona” Neymar Jr. said. “These were the Kings of the pitch, the Kings of my sport. I wish to bring back the legacy that those athletes created on the pitch. They each played in Puma, and each of them created their magic in The King.”
He continued: “Every time I lace my boots, my King boots, I will do anything to achieve all of my dreams to honor my name and that of all those great ones who wore the King before me. This will be my Puma history. The King is back!”
