Pele and Maradona or Maradona and Pele I think it is the most important and unequal comparison in the history of football. Both Diego Maradona and Pele do not deserve to be compared and we must know how to enjoy them. That is why Pele in a new farewell to Diego Maradona showed the most human side and was encouraged to tell him what he could never do in life.
Diego Maradona was for Pele a person who marked the life of the whole world. The lives of those who knew Maradona had a break when he appeared and for Pele, Maradona was one of the most honest people he ever knew. Pele called him a genius, a magician, a legend, but they didn't even manage to explain what he felt for Diego Maradona.
For this reason, Pele was encouraged to tell him in his emotional farewell letter what he had never encouraged before. Pele in four words summed up how many people feel for Maradona. Those four words will be remembered forever by the followers of Pele and Diego Maradona. "I love you Diego" was the most surprising of what Pele said.
Pele was very hurt by the death of Diego Maradona and is having a hard time overcoming it. The last wish that Pele has and that he is sure he will fulfill is that he will go back to play football with Diego Maradona wherever he is. It is incredible to see how the legend of Pele is getting bigger thanks to the fact that he shows his most human and affectionate side.
