The debate about the best footballer of all times brings a ton of different opinions, but Tite is adamant that his one is correct
The latest loss for Tite’s Brazil came at the hands of Argentina. Lionel Messi scored the only goal of the match, sealing the 1-0 defeat.
However, Brazil’s manager and Messi had a moment of a dispute during the game.
Tite was then asked if Messi was better than Pele. The Brazilian coach had none of it.
“Messi better than Pele? Pele is incomparable. Anyone who wants to compare Pele with another athlete knows nothing,” as quoted by Marca.

Even though many will disagree, the Brazilian is pretty straightforward when it comes to his choice.
