Pelé looks mighty good for a 68 year old man. Either Brazil has some excellent plastic surgeons or dude is a vampire. He looks the same. Maradona couldn't hold Pelé's jock in his hey day.

For those who saw or remember Pele playing how does Beckham compare to him? Is he as good or a complete fraud?

Pelé cant´be compared with the addicted Maradona, he´s not a good model for kids and people who loves soccer.

Ok, I admit Maradona used to be a good player but GOD??? C´mon, only Pelé!!! And brasilians don´t get old because they´re happy people. Just saying.

maradona IS THE KING OF DRUGS!!! OFF THE FIELD HE WAS BUSTED MANY TIMES WITH COCAINE, ON THE FIELD HE WAS TESTED POSITIVE FOR PERFORMANCE DRUGS (USA 94). THE ONLY WORLD CUP HE WON WAS VERY CONTROVERSIAL WITH A GOAL SCORED WITH HIS HAND!!
PELE WON HIS FIRST WORLD CUP AT 17 AND A SECOND WORL CUP. HIS CONDUCT OFF AND ON THE FIELD ARE VERY IMPRESSIVE!!!
PELE WILL BE THE KING FOREVER!!!!

My name is Gianni Truvianni and I have written articles on the subject of both Pele and Maradona which I think some of you may find interesting. Those who wish to read them can google "Truvianni,Pele" or "Truvianni,Maradona" and though both great players I believe Maradona is a much nicer person than Pele.Maradona never spoke ill of anybody, it was Pele who started talking badly about Maradona the way he does about every player who is getting more press then he.
