Introduction of Pele

He was born on October 23, 1940 at Tres Coracoes, Minas Gerais, Brazil. He is a former football player by profession. 

He played for the national team of Brazil. He served the national team of Brazil in the position of forward. He has been given the title of “the greatest” by FIFA.

The reason behind being named Pele

Pele’s real name is Edson Arantes do Nascimento

He was given this nickname as he used to pronounce the name of his favorite football player, goalkeeper Vasco da Gama Bile, as Pile

So his school friend used to call him Pele. He did not like the name and even fought with his friend because they called him Pele

But the more he protested, the more the nickname got stuck to him. 

When he started his professional journey of football, people used to call him Pele rather than his real name. So as time passed, he accepted the name.

Kylian Mbappe's vision on Pele

Mbappe said in an interview that he would never achieve what Pele has achieved. He said that Pele is the one and only king in football history. 

He also said that he wanted to help his team, PSG and French team, and enjoy playing football just like Pele did.

About young generation players

Pele thinks football is not as fun as it was on his team. 

He criticized young generation players by saying that they are playing for the amount of money they get rather than playing football as they love the sport. 

He also said that the young players are not loyal to the jerseys they wear. 

He also talked about players who played for their clubs rather than representing the team, as they get paid a low amount.

His perception of the current generation's best player

In an interview, Pele said that Lionel Messi is the best player in this current generation. 

He also said that Messi could even become the best player in football history.

His father's current health condition

Pele had his tumor removed from his colon because of Cancer. He stopped responding to chemotherapy treatment. So he is receiving palliative care now.
