FAMOUS QUOTES ABOUT PELE

Pelé is the greatest player of all time. He reigned supreme for 20 years. All the others – Diego Maradona, Johan Cruyff, Michel Platini – rank beneath him. There's no one to compare with Pelé. - Franz Beckenbauer

The greatest player in history was Di Stefano. I refuse to classify Pele as a player. He was above that. - Ferenc Puskas

Pelé was one of the few who contradicted my theory: instead of 15 minutes of fame, he will have 15 centuries.  - Andy Warhol

My name is Ronald Reagan, I’m the President of the United States of America. But you don’t need to introduce yourself, because everyone knows who Pelé is. - Ronald Reagan
