Again we don't know what's in the contract...I was highlighting so called ambiguity you eluded to regarding FSG and contracts because they sure as hell mucked up the Coutinho add ons, so who is to say they haven't mucked up their shirt sponsorship deal?

How did they muck up the coutinho add ons? Were they to foresee that a player who has played so well for us, that barca were willing to pay such a high amount for, was going to get loaned out after his first season?

Also, its a pretty big jump in assumption that because you didnt like how we dealt with a transfer that you're suddenly not going to like how we deal with a kit sponsorship. Two completely different things, likely overseen by completely different people from different divisions within the club.

I guess it's wait and see what happens. If there is so much ambiguity on shirt sponsorship contracts, then this could drag on to the point FSG may have no option but to accept NB's proposal for fear of losing money. Having it drag on past the date of the contract start. We are after all only 3 and a bit months away from the new deal starting.

Another interesting point is that Klopp apparently has a personal contract deal with NB, regarding trainers.

Would be interesting to see him in Nike clothes and NB trainers on the touch line.

How would LFC/NB/Nike be able to solve that issue?

Don't think that would be an issue, players wear different branded boots all the time.

I think Nike would be p*ssed if everytime Klopp bounces onto the pitch or strolls up to a camera in New Balance trainers!

If you were New Balance and Nike get preference for the shirt deal then you'd be making bright fluorescent, flashing trainers for Klopp...lol

As I said, nothing new, players choose the brand of their boots, same with managers.

And as predicted by myself, the case was dismissed in favour of LFC on the grounds that New Balance could not meet the distribution that Nike offers, therefore did not match the Deal. Unlucky Pickles. Looks like you were talking absolute shyte....again. Better luck next time.

NB apparently low balled it though, I understand they were paying 45m a year but decided to match Nike's 30m bid. Nike also have a clause regarding CL that the lawyer didn't seem to know, weird if true.
