– This is a difficult question because football has changed a lot over the years. How can we compare someone like Pele who played 40-50 years ago with those who play today? Maybe Messi, in the last 10-15 years, has been the best. In my time, Diego Maradona was the best. There were others like Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten, Gary Lineker, and maybe even me! – Matthaeus said in the pages of

Matthaeus picked the best player in the history of football. “I have to tell Pele!”

Before my time, Pele was the best. We’ve had so many great players over the years. Ronaldo played very well and now there is Robert Lewandowski. There were others like Franz Beckenbauer, Johan Cruyff, Eusebio – so many great players! – the former assistant began to list further.

Later in his speech, Matthaeus finally decided to choose the best one. – I have mentioned a lot of players and each of them has made football interesting over the years. When we speak purely by numbers, Pele has won the world championship three times! Messi never won it, while Maradona won it once. This means that when you think about these numbers in your head, you will only say one name. I have to tell Pele! – finished.
