He’s one of the greatest players of all time but never really showcased his talents at a top football club. For Brazil, Pele was a phenomenon. He holds just about every record in World Cup history for goalscoring and won an incredible three World Cup titles with his country. He is known for scoring over a thousand goals during his career, it’s just that these came for Brazilian side Santos. The forward never played in Europe – unlike the other football greats like Diego Maradona, Johann Cruyff, and Lionel Messi – and was thought to be unimpressed with the style of football he saw during the 1966 World Cup. Santos were then one of the best sides on the planet but it’s a shame that Pele didn’t showcase his talents for a club like Real Madrid or FC Barcelona.
