The former striker gave an interview to YouTube channel Pilhado and was asked whom he believes to be the world’s best player.

“Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo,” Pele told the channel.

Pele was then pressed on who will go down as the greatest player in the history of the game.

“And in Europe, Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cruyff.

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

It’s hardly surprising that Pele omitted Diego Maradona from the list, given the rivalry between the duo over the years.
