Me I disagree joor! According to CBSS report, Brazil great Pele, arguably the best player in the history of football has picked who he thinks the best player in the world is right now. The 3-time World Cup winner, has stated that Lionel Messi is the world’s best, ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.
While on a trip in India, Pele was pressed about the great debate as to who is the best player in the world between the prolific goal scoring talents.
Messi, who is currently out with a knee injury, recently won the best player in Europe award, and is a hot favourite for the Ballon d’or next January.
Pele would not go as far as ranking them on an all-time list as he did not want to compare either Ronaldo or Messi to past players. “But, of course, in the last ten years, Messi was the best player,” Pele said.
“Lots of people compare Messi with Ronaldo. But they are two different kind of players. Roanldo is more [of a] scorer…more [of a] center forward. Messi plays more deeper. But both are fantastic.”
Pele did not toe the line of fellow Brazilian Roberto Carlos, who said Neymar was the best.
