Brazilian legend, Pele has rated himself better than Barcelona star, Lionel Messi. According to him, the Argentine is not even as good as his compatriot, Diego Maradona, because he only relies on his left foot.

Pele further stated that he can only be compared with players who make use of both legs and their head.

How can you make a comparison between a guy who heads the ball well, shoots with the left, shoots with the right and another who only shoots with one leg, only has one skill and doesn’t head the ball well?”

“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.”

“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.”
