Jordan is considered by many as the greatest of all time, as his skill on the court marked a before and after in his sport, as well as inspiring future stars who considered him their idol, such as LeBron James and Kobe Bryatnt. Similarly, Cristiano has been the idol of many footballers who are now in the elite such as Kylian Mbappé and Vinicius Jr, this being another thing in common that both CR7 and Michael Jordan have in common.

However, there is another thing that unites them in the world of sport, particularly soccer, and it is something that Lionel Messi has not been able to achieve so far. And that is that both Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Jordan are the only athletes whose personal brands appear on a professional soccer team in Europe.

The Jordan brand, one of the most famous worldwide, reached an agreement with Paris Saint-Germain to appear on their kits used to play in the UEFA Champions League. Meanwhile, the CR7 brand also appears on the official kit of Sporting Lisbon, the first professional club for which Cristiano Ronaldo played.
