"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," News24 quoted Pele, as saying while speaking at an event celebrating the centennial of Neymar's club Santoshe 20-year-old Neymar is seen as Brazil's greatest player at the moment, and has been compared by many to Pele itself.
