Soccer Star Neymar Admits To Being Inspired By Michael Jordan (Video)


Several months ago, it was announced that Neymar would be part of the Nike/Jordan collaboration as the brand releases their first Jordan soccer cleats. Fast forward to today, we’re finally seeing the bad ass pair of shoes–and finding out why the soccer superstar was also the perfect choice for Nike.

Apparently, Neymar actually wanted to be like Michael Jordan even when he was a kid and had long been patronizing the Jordan line. And in the new commercial, Neymar not only shows off the new shoes but also gushes about his idol and how he inspired him to achieve greatness.

We suppose that means his collaboration with the brand was simply a way of thanking the veteran basketball star… and raking money from the endorsements, too. Win win situation!

Check out the shoes and find out what else Neymar had to say about his idol below:
