Brazil football legend, Pele has waded into the unending debate on who the better player is between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Speaking to YouTube channel Pilhado, Pele stated that Ronaldo is doing better than Messi because he's more complete.

‘Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo,’ Pele said.

‘I think he’s the best because he’s more consistent, but you can’t forget about [Lionel] Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker.’

He also took the time to pay tribute to legendary players who have delighted football fans across the world.

According to Pele, such players can never be forgotten, but he's better than them all.

‘It is a question that is difficult to answer,’ he replied when asked who is the best to have played the beautiful game.

‘We cannot forget about Zico, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo.

‘And in Europe, Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cruyff.

‘Now, it’s not my fault, but I think Pele was better than them all.’
