It was very disheartening to see the very great Pele in this sad state. After all he is the only footballer in the world to win three world cups. He is the only footballer in the world to have scored over a thousand goals in his long and glittering career, the figure is 1,283 one thousand two hundred and eighty three goals. This figure can only be dreamed by Cristiano Ronaldo and others. It was for a very good reason he was called Brazils heritage, and was not allowed to play for a European club, he only played with the COSMOS at the end of his career. The great Pele was greeted by president Vladimir Putin and was kissed by Diego Maradona when he arrived in Russia on a wheel chair.
