Rio De Janeiro: Football legend Pele says Brazil sensation Neymar has the ability to be better than Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona.
Speaking at an event in Sao Paulo Saturday, Pele said Barcelona star Messi and 1986 World Cup winner Maradona shared "similar limitations", reports Xinhua.
"Maradona was a great player but he only had a left foot and wasn't a renowned header of the ball," Pele said. "Messi is almost a copy of him. That's why I think Neymar has the capacity to be better."
