Can of Pepsi Costs Ronaldinho $750,000
Arguably, Brazilian soccer legend Ronaldinho might have consumed the most expensive beverage in the history football because a can of Pepsi recently cost him a whopping $750,000!
According to reports, beverage giants Coca-Cola terminated Ronaldinho’s endorsement deal worth the aforementioned amount for turning up at a press conference with a can of Pepsi in hand.
Not only did he place the can of Pepsi in front of him, he is also reported as sipping on the drink nonchalantly throughout the duration of the conference.
”The fact that the player has appeared with a can of Pepsi was the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Coca Cola marketing chief Marcelo Pontes told the paper. “The sponsorship had become embarrassing.”
Apparently, the act was not as embarrassing as what ended it.
