Pele Blasts Lionel Messi

Brazil legend, Pele, has slammed Lionel Messi as having one skill and says he was a better player than the Barcelona superstar.

The 78-year-old also criticised Messi for being one-footed.

Pele, speaking with Folha de Sao Paulo, stated that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s inability to head the ball, means he was a better player.

“How can you make a comparison between a guy who heads the ball well, shoots with the left, shoots with the right and another who only shoots with one leg, only has one skill and doesn’t head the ball well?

“How can you compare? To compare with Pele, it has to be someone who shoots well with the left, shoots well with the right, and scores headers” he said.
