Football Player Ronaldinho Once Lost a $750,000 Deal with Coca-Cola Because He Took a Sip from a Pepsi

Soccer legend Ronaldinho faced an expensive mishap during a press conference at his new club sponsored by Pepsi. Despite having a Coca-Cola sponsorship, he took a sip of Pepsi in front of journalists, leading to a loss of unpaid earnings estimated at over $1.5 million.

This incident reflects a company’s effort to exit a problematic contract due to Ronaldinho’s declining on-field performance and alleged unprofessional behavior. It serves as a cautionary tale for athletes about the choices they make, especially as their careers near an end.
