Remarkable statements Pele about Messi

Lionel Messi

The 78-year-old Brazilian is not that the 47-year-younger Former may be compared with him. So he gives in the interview with Folha de São Paulo. “How can you make a comparison between a man that may well heads, shoots with both feet and someone who only have one skill and moderate can heads. If you’re someone with Pele to compare, he must tweebenig and arranged to score with the head.”

Of course, also came the name of Diego Armando Maradona over. The man who Argentina 32 years ago almost single-handedly world champion made. “Maradona is one of the best players ever. Or he was better than Messi? Yes, much better. (Franz) Beckenbauer and (Johan) Cruyff were also better. They were fantastic.”

Pele made in his rich career a thousand goals and was set up in 1958, 1962 and 1970 world champion with Brazil. In recent years he had a number of times on the knife. “I feel no more pain, but a certain kind of weakness. I had two good legs. See how they look like today.”
