'Ronaldo Is Better Than Messi, But I'm The Best' - Brazil Legend Pele

'Ronaldo Is Better Than Messi, But I'm The Best' - Brazil Legend Pele

Ronaldo and Messi have been regarded as the world's leading duo for more than a decade, sharing 11 Ballon d'Or awards between them.

'Ronaldo Is Better Than Messi, But I'm The Best' - Brazil Legend Pele

Brazil legend Pele has given his opinion in an never-ending debate surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

The Brazilian legend prefers Ronaldo as he believes he is the 'more consistent', however, the 79-year-old believes he remains the greatest footballer of all time

Pele said;

Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo,' he told YouTube channel Pilhado.

I think he's the best, because he's more consistent, but you can't forget about Lionel Messi, of course, but he's not a striker.

The 79-year-old was effusive in his praise of Ronaldo he did point out that there have been some legendary figures before him and Messi. And when comparing the duo to legendary names of yesterday - there was no doubt in his mind who comes out on top... himself.

He replied when asked who is the best to have played the beautiful game.

It is a question that is difficult to answer, We cannot forget about Zico, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo.

And in Europe, Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cruyff.

Now, it's not my fault, but I think Pele was better than them all.
