Canuck Oranje Posted December 30, 2005 Share Posted December 30, 2005 It is surprising sometimes how perceptions get distorted over time. I was given a DVD copy of Pele Eterno (Pele Forever) for Christmas. After watching it, I reconfirmed my belief that no one else has come close since. Not even Ronaldo, Ronaldinho nor Robinho. Beckenbauer says it best, when he says in the film that Pele is the most complete he has seen in his life. The most amazing thing is the combination of power, speed, toughness, technical completeness, and the degree of technical perfection. Another thought to ponder. What would the Brazilian league be like today if all Brazilian players played at home as they did in Pele's day? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
