Pele is the legendary footballer but his era has gone. After the Brazilian great, football has seen so many greats. But when the question used to come, who is the greatest of all time, people’s answers are quite different. But most of the cases, they are divided into two groups. Some say Maradona is the one and others vote for Pele. However, earlier today, Pele faced the same question and chose his best. Yes, Pele considered himself as the greatest of all time.
Instead of Lionel Messi, the Brazilian great chose Cristiano Ronaldo as the best footballer in recent times. But he considered himself the greatest of all time. The debate did not start today. But it is so old. From the very beginning, the same question used to come. Who is the greatest footballer of all time? And when the question comes, another related question who is the best in that current time also comes forward. The former Brazilian striker Pele has given the most wanted answer today. It is not new for him but also earlier he talked about it. He did not add any new things. But to him, he is the greatest of all time.

Now, when Pele asked about the greatest of all time, he stated that is is a difficult question. There is no chance of forgetting Ronaldinho and Ronaldo. In Europe, there is a pretty big list. But Pele is far ahead of the others, no doubt.
Generally, when the topic comes who is the greatest of all time in the history of football, along with Pele, the name of the Argentine great Maradona used to come. Based on the topic, the two legends used to face against each other several times. So, it is not new for Pele to remove Maradona from his list. In recent time, Pele is not well. His physical condition is going down reportedly.
