You Can’t Compare Messi With Me, Says Pele by mediaNGR: 1:01pm On Dec 06
Football legend, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, 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.
Pele said, Lionel Messi “only has one skill”, and even his fellow Argentine Diego Maradona was “much better” than him, reports Goal.com.
Pele 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.
A man, who netted over 1000 goals in his career and won the World Cup on three occasions told Brazillian media, Folha de Sao Paulo, “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.”
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.”

Messi is not even the best player ever from Argentina. Messi should be compared with Pele when he wins 3 world cups and scores over a thousand career goals. Pele remains the GOAT.

Sorry, Messi don't argue with people about who the best is.

You've used your own time, just STFU and enjoy the moment.

He's talking about him using just one leg. Maybe he hasn't noticed that it is easier for players who their strong leg is right to easily use left as a weak foot.

But it's hard for those who their strong foot is left to use right undecided

Messi is short, so scoring goals with head will be hard. Moreover, only person that stays inside the box and wait for pass from others score head goals. Messi create chances and also score grin grin

Adult professionals should endeavour to praise the younger ones to encourage them.

I don't think Messi is interested in comparing himself with another player.

Pele actually scored 727 goals or so if you remove those goals he scored in when he was in the Armed Forces which I think shouldn't count.

Greats are compared with Greats.

You will always hear people ask if Messi is the greatest.

People compare Messi to Pele and Maradona.

Hardly see people Compare Ronaldo with Pele or Maradona.

Both a Messi and Ronaldo fan but I will pick Messi anyday

Messi Comparism ends with c. Ronaldo, kaka, Ronaldo of Brazil, litlle bit Ronaldinho. If u compare Messi with likes of Zidane, Beckham, Maradona, and legend of football Pele then u on your own.

I have seen the video clips of these top legends, Messi would have outclassed all of them even in their time. That is the problem Ronaldo has, if he had played in a different time than Messi, he would comfortably sit on the top tier with the legends. But for Messi that is causing people to overlook some of the great things he has been doing. Messi is the god of soccer, and i bet you someday the champions league will be renamed after him, "LIONEL MESSI LEAGUE OF CHAMPIONS".
