I’ve visited Brazil for work several times. That’s definitely not the impression I got from people I spoke to. You wait and see what Brazil is like when Pele dies.Never proved himself in a good league he was content to rack up goals in unofficial friendlies against pub sides in the 4th division of Brazil.
He was essentially carried by players such as Garrincha, Rivelinho and Jairzinho.
Absolute fraud of the highest order kept alive through documentaries which glide over his average world cup stats.
Ask any Brazilian who their best player was and not one will say Pele.
I think Pele is as revered in Brazil as Maradona is in Argentina. Globally too these two players almost transcend the sport.I’ve visited Brazil for work several times. That’s definitely not the impression I got from people I spoke to. You wait and see what Brazil is like when Pele dies.
Telling someone that their opinion of Messi being the best ever is “so wrong”, is well, so wrong. Statistically, he boots the arse of Maradona. Personally, I prefer Maradona as a player to,watch, but there’s no denyIng that Messi is the most productive of the two and if someone wants to use that to gauge who the best player is, that should be ok.
