- Pele holds the Guinness World Record as top scorer of all time.
- The Brazilian has claimed Cristiano Ronaldo is the best footballer right now.
- He believes Lionel Messi isn't far behind, though.
- Pele maintains he is the greatest player of all time.
The former Selecao star chose the Juventus winger ahead of his South American counterpart.
He was quoted by The Sun: "Today the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo.
"I think he’s the best, because he’s more consistent, but you can’t forget about [Lionel] Messi, of course, but he’s not a striker.”
Pele also mentioned a couple of players he rates as contenders for the 'greatest of all time' title but maintains he remains number one on the list.
He added: "It is a question that is difficult to answer. We cannot forget about Zico, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo.
“And in Europe, Franz Beckenbauer and Johan Cruyff.
"Now, it’s not my fault, but I think Pele was better than them all."
This is not the first time Pele would speak on the Messi-Ronaldo debate. In 2018, the Brazilian picked Messi over the Portuguese.
