Pelé reveals who his all time favourite footballer is!!! 😨😨

by - November 07, 2017

In a recent promotion in Milan Pelé, the living Legend of football, spoke to La Gazzetta della Sports about his favourites from past and present footballers. The 77 years old was seen flowering praise for Barcelona and Argentina star Lionel Messi, and thinks him as the most complete player, who has stepped on football pitch.


The three times World Cup winner said 
 It's very difficult because there have always been players who have been compared with me [as the best player ever],
 First there was [Alfredo] Di Stefano, then [Johan] Cruyff, [Franz] Beckenbauer, Bobby Charlton, Maradona and now there is Messi. Leo is the one I like the most -- he's the most complete.


Pelé added
Messi is my favourite player, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar are also good. They have different styles in a football which has changed.


For the Brazilian Legend it was hard to accept Brazil's defeat against the current World Champions, Germany by a margin of 7-1 in 2014 World Cup in Belo Horizonte.
"The last World Cup was very sad," said the 75-year-old. "We conceded seven goals to Germany. Losing is fine, but to concede seven goals is too much."
"I was nine years old when I first saw my father cry. It was after theMaracanazo -- Brazil's defeat to Uruguay in the final game of the 1950 World Cup. Two years ago, when we were humiliated 7-1 by Germany, my son almost saw me cry."
"It was a disaster without explanation for Brazil. Maybe we underestimated the game against Colombia. We've lost two World Cups played on home soil in Brazil -- 1950 and 2014. Now we only have Neymar as a world-class player and that's too little."

Pelé  has also approved Francesco Totti as the "Italian Pelé", though admitted  Francesco Totti  has rarely suffered as much as he did seeing Brazil beaten 7-1 by Germany.
