Pelé shares views on Neymar, blasts CR7

Pelé ignites debate between CR7 & Neymar with controversial statement

February 4, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The Brazilian legend doesn't seem to be impressed by Cristiano's list of records, hinting that his compatriot will be crowned as the best player in the world soon.

The debate about who is better between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has taken another turn. According to Pelé, the discussion about the world's most dominant footballer should be between Neymar and the Portuguese star. And wouldn't you know it? He believes his compatriot is better.

In an interview with ESPN, the 3-time World Cup champion with A Canarinha shared his views on this matter, and it seems like the former Santos footballer isn't impressed by the skills shown by CR7.

"Cristiano Ronaldo isn't better than Neymar. When it comes to skills, Neymar is way better," O Rei stated.

The 76-year-old legend went even further and revealed the only aspect Neymar needs to improve before claiming the throne as the best in the business.

"Neymar's only problem is his 'head game', Cristiano uses his head better. Neymar doesn't score headers and that's something that could make a difference,"Pelé added.

The legendary player's words come during a time in which Barcelona's wingman is having problems to score goals. The Brazilian ace has scored 9 goals in all competitions, and he went almost three months without a goal until January 20, when he netted a penalty kick against Real Sociedad.
