Former Super Eagles player and member, FIFA Technical Study Group, for the just concluded 2022 World Cup Qatar, Mr Sunday Oliseh, has picked the Brazilian football legend Pele as the Greatest Of All Time, GOAT, over superstars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Oliseh said this in an AriseTV interview on Monday.
The Nigerian Olympics Gold medalist, Oliseh, who spoke on the Qatar 2022 World Cup overview, said that no player could rival the record Pele set.
He stated that football stars worldwide are excelling on the inspiration of Pele.
He said, “This is what everybody is getting inspiration from to excel in their football careers. His name is Pele. He is the greatest player of All Time, G.O.A.T. You cannot win three world cups, and anybody will want to compete with you. I know people, especially the young ones, will not be happy with my choice, but those of us who are elderly can identify with him.”
