‘Why You Can’t Compare Messi With Me’ – Pele

Written by ParaBOLA
Football legend, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, professionally known as Pelé has stated that he is out of the league of five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi and there is no basis for comparison.

According to Pele, Lionel Messi “only has one skill”, and even his fellow Argentine Diego Maradona was “much better” than him.

He suggested that the 31-year-old is one-dimensional and too reliant on his left foot to be compared to other iconic figures at the top of the football game.

“How can you compare? To compare with Pele, it has to be someone who shoots well with the left, shoots well with the right, and scores headers.”

Pele added, “As far as I’m concerned, Maradona was one of the best players ever. If you ask me, ‘Was he better than Messi?’ Yes, he was. Much better.

“[Franz] Beckenbauer, [Johan] Cruyff were also excellent players.”
