The Pele football player has been involved in the comparison of the biggest players in Argentina's history and thought that Diego Armando Maradona was a "football player" much better than Lionel Messi, with whom he refuses to be compared.
"For me, Maradona was one of the best things you could tell me if it was better than Messi, and I was It's a lot better, "said Edson Arantes do Nascimento, a three-time concert by the Brazilian team in 1958, 1962 and 1970, in a broad interview today published by Folha's newspaper of Sao Paulo.
In addition, "O Rei" refused any comparison with Messi when it was asked about statements from the Spanish Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta, that Messi was the best player in football history.
"It's a flavor, how can you compare a well-suited person, to the right, with the left, with to another man who starts with just one, they have no skill but it's not good enough. " It can not be compared. Pele needs to be someone who starts with the two legs, with goals from the head, "said the former Santos game.
