As time goes by and new generations come, new players have and came gone with it. To true football fans (soccer to some), nobody will forget greats of the past from Gascoin, Zola, Bergkamp, Ronaldinho, Davids for his amazing tricks, Zidane... the list goes on and we get to this era. I call it the Ronaldo and Messi era.
However... Pele has stood the test of time. Legends tend to be over sold when their stories are told. But is this true with Pele?
When he was playing, the ball used to weigh alot more, the defenders were way more aggressive and you could get away with murder back then. Compared to today where its alot more safer, back then not only did you need to be great but you needed courage to do what Pele did. And he did it against all odds.
Dont take my word for it. Start with this Netflix documentary and then do your own research. This is dude the man when it comes to football. Taught his nation how become winners by being a winner himself. Brazil would go on to become a force to be reckon with after Pele introduced the "jinga". Go on Netflix and check it out. Then learn more.
