‘Neymar Better Than Mbappe’ Insists Pele
Brazil legend Pele says that he thinks Neymar is a superior player to his 19 year old Paris Saint Germain teammate Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe has been compared to Pele after helping his country to win the World Cup in Russia this summer. Aged only 19, he is considered one of the finest players in the world already.
Pele is impressed but thinks his compatriot Neymar is a superior player, “People compare me with Mbappe and there are similarities, right? But he is already 19. He won the World Cup.”
Pele was joined by Mbappe as the only teenagers to score in a World Cup final this summer. "I think Neymar is a more complete player than him, but in Europe everyone speaks more about Mbappe."
O Rei also said he is in better health after some surgeries over the past year, but is not yet 100%. “Thanks to God, I am well,” he said.
“I had three surgeries in the past years, but I'm not 100 per cent. I don't feel any more pain, I feel more weakness.”
