Pele thinks Neymar is better than Messi

Pele really seems obsessed with protecting his legacy as the 'greatest player ever' even turning up to random parties to let everyone there know that Lionel Messi isn't really that good.  Now he's told some reporters that he isn't even as good as Neymar.

In all fairness, Neymar is pretty awesome but then again, he plays for Santos in the Brazilian league.  He also hasn't scored a million goals for Barcelona in a single season so it's hard to compare them stat for stat.  We could always just wait until he eventually signs for Barcelona as has been rumoured but for now everyone should listen to wise old Pele:
there's always this Maradona comparison, saying that he's better than Pele. Now some are saying that Messi is better than Pele. Well, he has to be better than Neymar first, which he isn't yet. He has more experience
Why does he talk in the third person?  He's basically like an old Brazilian version of Kenny Powers these days.  In more good news, Pele has also joined Twitter, which is great, because if there's one thing the internet needs it's more adverts for people who can't get a boner.
