The biggest! Pelé was an unparalleled charisma!


“Krone” sports director Peter Moizi today writes about the death of football legend Pelé…

There is no arguing for German legend Franz Beckenbauer. “Pelé was the greatest of all great footballers!” 1281 goals in 1363 matches, three world titles, with his magic tricks, the Brazilian brought his beloved football sport to a new dimension.

Thanks to Pelé, Brazilian TV broadcasts were street cleaners in Europe, he was one of the first athletes to rake in millions with worldwide advertising contracts, and in popularity he even surpassed the Rolling Stones and Beatles in the 1960s.

An icon for generations, the eternal king, the first football superstar. An unparalleled charismatic, who allowed his fans to participate in life with his open character. Brazil weeps for folk hero number 1, outgoing president Jair Bolsonaro even called for three days of national mourning after his death.

It is also a farewell to an old, iconic and fair football era. Before Pelé, greats like Eusébio, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, George Best and Gerd Müller left the world much too soon. Players who, with their brilliance and unmistakable charisma, have paved the way for football to be at the forefront of all sports around the world.

And now the successors of the kicker pioneers can do their job in a billion dollar paradise…
