Pele-Lionel messi is my favorite player

Pele has named Lionel Messi at the top of his list of all-time best players, ahead of Diego Maradona, while saying he was almost brought to tears by Brazil's World Cup defeat to Germany two years ago.

Brazilian legend Pele was in Milan promoting a film about his life and he spoke to La Gazzetta della Sport about his favourites from past and present, with Argentina and Barcelona star Messi topping that list.

"It's very difficult because there have always been players who have been compared with me [as the best player ever]," Pele said. "First there was [Alfredo] Di Stefano, then [Johan] Cruyff, [Franz] Beckenbauer, Bobby Charlton, Maradona and now there is Messi. Leo is the one I like the most -- he's the most complete.

"Messi is my favourite player, but Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar are also good. They have different styles in a football which has changed."
