Adidas struggled to find outstanding players in 2015. They had Lionel Messi, to be sure, but despite his talent on the field, he prefers to stay out of the spotlight, unlike Cristiano Ronaldo, his longtime adversary who works for Nike. No, Adidas lacked a charismatic person, someone with a larger-than-life persona who could not only front advertisements but also elevate them. Paul Pogba, who will soon command the highest salary in football, please take the stage.
In the next five years, Paul Pogba became a main player for Adidas and had seven seasons of his signature collection. He is one of the most marketable athletes on the planet thanks to his outsized personality, amazing social media following, and, of course, his on-field skills. While there may still be doubts about his dedication at the club level, the World Cup and Nations League champion has more than lived up to the marketing promise.
Fans saw Paul Pogba as a sports celebrity, a world soccer champion, an iconic Manchester United player, and someone who stood out both on and off the field in the first season of Amazon Studio’s The Pogmentary: Born Ready. However, he is nearing a defining moment in his life. He must choose whether or not to stay with Manchester while pursuing his aim of helping his nation in winning a championship. His personal and professional futures will be impacted by this choice.
As fans across the world tune in to the 2022 Qatar World Cup matches, Pepsi unveiled a cheeky limited-time Nutmeg flavor cola based on the game’s cleverest move after launching a S’mores Collection. To celebrate, Pepsi released a special “Nutmeg Royale” 2-minute trailer with appearances from some of the game’s biggest names, including Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba, and Ronaldinho. The soccer stars are shown getting mugged on the streets of Morocco while competing in a game with the locals and each other. The soundtrack to the classic football game, “The Rockafeller Skank” by Fatboy Slim, is featured in the trailer.
