Pele names Messi as Number One

Pele has named Lionel Messi at the top of his list of all-time best players, ahead of Diego Maradona, while saying he was almost brought to tears by Brazil’s World Cup defeat to Germany two years ago.

Messi is my favourite player, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar are also good. They have different styles in a football which has changed.”   The report was published on his club’s official Facebook Fanpage.
