Soccer Legend Gary Lineker -- Ronaldo Is GREATER Than Pele

EXCLUSIVE


Gary Lineker is a soccer legend -- he's even been enshrined in England's Football Hall of Fame -- which is why it's a little shocking that someone with his experience and soccer knowledge believes Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Pele.

Lineker -- who's now a popular soccer analyst -- was leaving STK this weekend when we asked how Ronaldo's career compares to Pele's.

"Ronaldo is Ronaldo," Lineker told us ... "He's better than Pele."


Just a quick stat comparison:

Pele --
614 club goals in 18 years (and that's not even counting his time on the NY Cosmos).
Ronaldo -- 233 club goals in 12 years

Pele -- 3 World Cup titles
Ronaldo -- none.

There's no doubting Ronaldo's an incredible talent. But better than Pele? Really? Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
