The video game company KONAMI announced this Tuesday morning that the Brazilian international Neymar Jr is the new eFootball PES (Pro Evolution Soccer) ambassador. The Paris Saint-Germain striker comes to replace Antoine Griezmann, with whom the Japanese firm broke his contract a few days ago after his controversial video with Ousmane Dembélé.
“I am honored to have signed a contract with KONAMI. I would like to continue to play with passion and generate a lot of enthusiasm in the world of football with the PES and Winning Eleven series ”, he told Konami’s official website.
