Cristiano Ronaldo Responds After Son Receives Backlash For Wearing Nike And Adidas

Cristiano Ronaldo has hit back after his son received backlash for wearing Nike and Adidas.

Cristiano Jr had a picture with his grandmother and Ronaldo's mum Maria Dolores, who shared the snap online to her 2.6 million followers.

But a good chunk comments were critical of Ronaldo's eldest child. In the photo, the 11-year-old was wearing a Nike hoodie, shorts, Adidas socks and Adidas 'Yeezy' sliders.


Ronaldo is of course the face of Nike football and so his son's attire caused a huge stir and led to plenty taking issue with his brand choices.

But five-time Ballon d'Or winner Ronaldo was not best pleased and responded by commenting on his mother's post.

Defending his son, he wrote: "He wears what he wants. Not what you want."


In 2016, Ronaldo signed a whopping $1 billion 10-year-deal with the swoosh brand and regularly posts Nike related content on his social media.

At the centre of their adverts and campaigns, Ronaldo wears Nike mercurial boots and many of their other products.
