'He Has Only One Skill' - Pele Places Self Above Messi

Pele Neymar simulation difficult to defend

Speaking in an interview with Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, Pele dismissively looked upon the Barcelona captain as having just the "one skill". TO start with Pele was a bit diplomatic saying it's a matter of taste of people as to who likes whom. "To compare with Pele, it has to be someone who shoots well with the left, shoots well with the right, and scores headers".

MORGAN'S TWEETMorgan wrote: "You've had too much Viagra mate @Pele - you weren't good enough to get in Arsenal's Invincibles, let alone rival Messi".

There are many who consider Messi to be the finest player to have ever played the game, with a five-time Ballon d'Or victor boasting countless records and a stunning strike rate.

"[Franz] Beckenbauer, [Johan] Cruyff were also excellent players".

Pele, meanwhile, heaped quite a bit of praise on his compatriot Neymar, who has recently been compared on many occasions with the 78-year-old star, whether in terms of the number of goals both brought to their national team, or the expectations placed on them in their home country.

When it comes to comparing Pele and Messi, a huge factor will always be the World Cup.

Messi has recorded an impressive 567 club goals and 221 assists in 653 appearances and an additional 65 goals and 40 assists in 128 matches for Argentina.

The Samba star has never been shy of giving his opinion on all things football, but it is unlikely that his latest musings will be well received by anyone outside of his homeland.

Pele has always been adamant that he is the greatest footballer of all time, but his swipe at the Argentine worldwide really does seem petty at best.

"I don't feel any more pain, but I feel some weakness".

"You could mention others, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who's a great goalscorer, he reminds me of Ronaldo".

"In terms of being a complete player, there's no doubt that Messi is the best".
