Pelé: Neymar can be more of a complete player than Maradona and Messi
Brazilian legend Pelé believes his compatriot Neymar has the potential to be a better all-round player than Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi.
The former Santos forward, who helped his country win the World Cup three times, does not seem to enjoy a friendly relationship with Maradona, with the pair often engaging in discussions over who is the best current and best ever footballer.
''For me, Maradona was a great player, but only really used his left leg. Messi resembles him in that sense,'' Pelé told reporters.
''[Neymar] has the potential to overcome both by being more complete.''
