Coca Cola and Pepsi, Ronaldinho should have known the difference! The Brazilian striker lost his deal with Coca Cola after arriving at a press conference holding a can of Pepsi cola. That’s $741,300 a year in publicity endorsements down the drain. Gone forever.
The scene which caused alarm in the Coca Cola head offices took place in early June, during the conference announcing Ronaldinho’s arrival at Atletico Mineiro. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back, Ronnie is sadly no the player who was twice crowned world’s best, at his last club Flamengo his absences from training and his partying attracted more attention than his performances on the pitch, causing the club to end his tenure after a disappointing 2 years.
