In a post on Instagram, Neymar denied the allegation made by a Nike employee. The statement read, in part:"Facts can be distorted because people see them from different angles. We cannot deny that life is like this. That's life!
"I was not given the opportunity to defend myself. I was not given the opportunity to know who this person was that was allegedly offended. I don't even know her. I've never had any kind of relationship or approach with this person. I didn't even have a chance to talk to her, to know the real reasons for her pain. That person, an employee, was not protected. I, a sponsored athlete, was not protected. Until when will this happen?"Irony of fate I will continue to stamp a brand on my chest that betrayed me. That's life for you! I remain firm and strong, believing that time, always this cruel time, will bring the true answers. Faith in God
NIKE TERMINATED THE CONTRACT WITHOUT HEARING BOTH THE PARTIES. IS THAT FAIR ENOUGH.
