Recording what his father never achieved, Tim and Weston McKennie among the
US national team players are apparently no fans of the Nike USA 2022 World Cup home and away kits. As spotted by US Men’s National Team, both Timothy Weah and Weston McKennie commented on the leaked USA 2022 World Cup kits. Their comments leave no room for speculation – they are no fans of the new kits by Nike.
It has to be noted that both players are not endorsed by Nike but by rival companies. Tim Weah has been sponsored by New Balance since October 2021, while Weston McKennie is an Adidas athlete. This may influence their opinion but is certainly not directly connected to their deals.
