Pelé never bothered by racismPelé claims to have never had any problems with racism
In light of the Dani Alves banana incident and the Donald Sterling NBA racism scandal, racism is currently high on the agenda.
In a recent interview with the Miami Herald, Pelé was asked about his experience of such discrimination.
“I never had any problems,” said the 73-year-old.
“On the contrary, I have open doors all over the world, and I am received marvellously wherever I go.”
“There are always crazy people who say things, but those things have never bothered me. I never paid attention.”
