Adidas Take Barcelona Midfielder Rafinha to Court After He Refuses to Wear their Boots

Barcelona midfielder Rafinha has been taken to court by sportswear giants Adidas after refusing to wear their boots – with the German company demanding an astonishing compensation fee.

The Brazilian international has cemented himself as a regular first-team pick at the Nou Camp this season under Ernesto Valverde thanks to his classy and silky displays in the middle of the park, and the 25-year-old play-maker is exactly the kind of player Adidas would love to see strutting his stuff in their cleats.

And, according to Adidas, via the Mirror, he agreed to do so, before reneging and decided to wear other brands.

Adidas’ lawyer Dolf Segaar said the case is being handled at an Amsterdam court as “the Adidas venture with whom Rafinha signed a contract is based in the Dutch capital”.

Adidas are seeking an eye-watering £90,000 for every day Rafinha refuses to wear their boots, which is a fee pretty much nobody can afford, even elite-level footballers.

The brother of Bayern Munich star Thiago, Rafinha is expected to strongly defend himself – but what do you think of the case?
