The rivalry between Pelé and Maradona is an old catch that we have often used to listen to on the football planet. Even if the Argentinian and the Brazilian have both hung up the crampons, they are content to just tackle in the statements interposed.
“I can not explain why Maradona is obsessed with me”
A few days ago, in her book, Maradona had attacked the Peeled King. The answer was not long in coming as the Brazilian gave the press a few words about his rivalry with El Pibe de Oro. “I do not know why, I can not explain why Maradona is obsessed with me. I always said he was one of the best players in the world, and that’s true. On the other hand, he was not a great player of the head. He did not score many goals with … It is also the case with his right foot, he was especially good shooter of the left. “
To the question who is the best, the triple winner of the World Cup (1958, 1962 and 1970) has his little idea. “Since all this time, when people make comparisons, I make jokes about it. For me it was a great player but you can not compare Maradona to Pele. We are friends, we joke all the time. “
You could compete Pele when you have scored 1000 goals
For Pelé, he is one step ahead of the Argentinean who became famous by “the hand of God” in 1986 against England. “I always told him you could compete with Pele when you score more than 1000 goals. He replied that he did not know and that it mattered little. ”
Maybe in the next few days, Maradona will be able to reply to this new statement of Edson Arantes do Nascimento.
