Having made a switch from being a Nike athlete to PUMA, Mamelodi Sundowns star Sipho Mbule was pretty swanky with the former brand, and here's what the new one can expect.

The story

We imagine that the 24-year-old is quite a marvel to work with if you're in the kind of business that Nike and PUMA are into. Since making the switch to Masandawana in June, Mbule appears to have joined into a deal with the latter and that is perhaps unsurprising given that his new club's kit-maker is PUMA.

Nevertheless, it is fair-minded to look at how charismatically stylish the baller was during his days with Nike, and what could be anticipated with his new German sports apparel manufacturer.

Battles of the brands

It is known that choosing between any two brands, in general, is a subjective and prefer-driven choice. Therefore, it is important to note that no suggestion is made that either sportswear-maker is superior to the other. 

Two weeks ago the former SuperSport United midfielder tagged PUMA in his first Instagram post as a Downs player, suggesting that he had now partnered with the label. 

In the weeks after it became clear that his allegiance had changed, prompting a reminiscent look at what he did with Nike clothes, and what he is set to do in PUMA drip.

Did you know?

The playmaker has a market value of R11.8 million (€700 000), according to Transfermarkt.
