If Diego Maradona presented us with some crazy moments and equally crazy quotes, Pele's quotes are a bit more mundane.
He's had his say on his rival, various players and the game itself.
"For 20 years they have asked me the same question, who is the greatest? Pele or Maradona? I replay that all you have to do is look at the facts. How many goals did he score with his right foot or with his head?"
Those attributes aren't the only criteria, but that's still a solid argument there, Pele.
"He is the greatest player in the world right now, without a doubt, he is the player who gives (Brazilians) the most joy."
He said that about Totti too at one point. Not the "he gives Brazilians joy" part obviously. This next one is well said, though.
"When football stars disappear, so do the teams, and that is a very curious phenomenon. It is like in the theatre, in a play, where there is a great star. If the star is not well, the whole cast suffers."
