    I hope to God he declines. Their’s nothing more emberassing than seeing this old Geezer try to score another goal.

  4. Varun says:

    This will end up being billed as
    Messi V Pele

    So it won’t ever happen, ‘coz Pele is shit scared of Messi right now
    Asking him to score 1200+ goals BEFORE he’ll even consider him to be his equal.

  5. Montesquieu says:

    One thing that can be said about Maradonna and Pele, they’re both massive assholes.
