Brazil legend Pele, has sensationally claimed that Neymar is a better football player than Lionel Messi. The Barcelona maestro has won the FIFA World Player of the Year three times in a row and has already scored 61 goals this season.
LOL, exactly my first reaction, he's getting crazier by the the Age.
Pele gets way too much credit, he's not even top 10 players ever... But I won't get into that. Just wants to pick a Brazilian here too.
out of curiosity, who is in your list of top 10 players ever?
Okay pele.. now goo back to sleep..
neymar has potential to be better, but hell no, he is not better than messi right now, he is very far away of both messi and ronaldo and a couple of other players. Right now the two best players are ronaldo and messi.
Agreed, Neymar definitely has a bright future, but currently he is not better than 'Messi'.
he has potential yes.. but he hasnt shown any sign that he could be better than messi.. give him a few yrs a club in europe and a 40 goal season before we start making these comparisons
crazy old pele cant keep his mouth shut nowadays (especially about messi)
As a new Football fan, i really don't know what's his beef with Messi. what did he do to him exactly, so far all i can understand is that he is threatened by Messi, that he'll replace his name as the Football Legend.
New football fan? lol okay i guess. I think one yeah he knows Messi starting to make people forget about Pele and 2 he'd rather have another Brazilian be the one to do it.
Didn't he say this before like 10x?
Yeah it seems this hits the headlines once Every few months lol
This is getting old and just plain stupid. Neymar has done NOTHING outside of brazil. Ok sure you can say messi isn't as good as you pele.. But seriously stop with the stupid comments.
"Neymar has done NOTHING outside of brazil"
the same can actually be said about messi doing NOTHING outside of barca believe it or not.
ummm hes won the champions league in europe...
"ummm hes won the champions league in europe..."
lol dude, read my comment again.
or wait, let me rephrase it for you to a lower standard you might understand.
aside from Barca, where else has messi done anything?
just like neymar, they only shine in one place. Neymar <in brazil> messi <in barca>
but i see you wearing your fan goggles so its not hard to see how you miss other very valid points.
I try to keep my comments civilized on these forums. However, you seem to be a stupid little prick who likes to try and belittle others so I'll also rephrase my comment, for your slow brain to understand. First of all I am no Messi fan, and I am no Barcelona fan. I stand by Real Madrid and its players! You can ask Corepred4, HxCGamer and many others in these threads about where my loyalty falls when it comes to clubs. Yeah messi hasn't done anything for barca. But last time I saw messi plays in Europe, where are the best players, and best leagues are. Whether its the premier league with man u, arsenal, chelsea or Seria A with Inter and AC Milan, they all have one thing in common and that is that they compete with one another through the Champions league. Have either of the two done anything at the International Level? Well in terms of winning things no. they haven't, however, messi has plenty more caps and more professionalism than the spike headed and self proclaimed little prick that is Neymar. Messi has represented his country in vital championships has he won anything no, but hes done it more times than Neymar, the brazilians fear that the world will "stunt" his growth if they let him go from Brazil too fast. Does messi need to prove himself in other club/league. I would say yes, just to show that he can play outside of the taylor made barca squad. The only competition i saw Neymar playing European teams was the club WC and if i recall santos got wrecked. Get your head out yer @rse and then maybe you'll think twice before trying to offend people.
Even old men troll, that is good news for me.
People who use the word troll should have their nipples shocked. Anyway, he's not being a 'troll' if that truly how he feels. It's just his opinion, kids these days seem to forget what opinions are. Everything nowadays is troll troll trolling trolololol.
haha i laughed at trololol
Don't be stupid, it's not how he feels. If Neymar was not part of Santos Pele would not give a crap. He is hyping Neymar so his value goes up which benefits Santos when he is sold.
Where is Pele's sitter at? He's making himself look bad every time he opens his mouth, with all due respect to the legend he is.
he knows that nobody will remember him for making this comments so its like he has immunity, but yea neymar is not in the same level as messi
He seems to be losing his mind with old age.
.....but ronaldinho was better than messi :)
whoever disagreed with you must be living under a rock and clearly hasn't seen ronaldinho in his peak. for club and country on top of it.
He plays for Santos where he has not got top class players playing against him. Unless he moves to Europe and plays along the big boys he can't even dream to be up there with Messi and Ronaldo, who do it week and week out in the Spanish league as well as the champions league..
