In an illustrious career, the Brazilian won three World Cups and bagged 1,281 goals – although 600 of those were scored during training.

The 79-year-old set tongues wagging when he plumped for Ronaldo ahead of his Argentinian counterpart.

‘It’s a tough call but if I had to pick one, I’d go for that shy retiring lad Ronaldo’.

When asked if his decision was swayed by South American rivalry, Pele replied:

‘No, it has nothing to do with Messi being an Argie b*stard at all’.

However, when comparing the duo to the greats of the past, the Brazilian was in no doubt who was the greatest of all:

‘1281 goals mate. Three World Cups. 10,000 keepy-ups in one day – without Viagra’.

But now, former Rosenborg striker Nicklas Bendtner has weighed into the debate by declaring: ‘I’m the GOAT’.

Bendtner, who has scored 30 goals in 81 international appearances, is viewed as a god in Denmark – and not just by himself.

The man who scored an eye-watering 5 goals in one Bundesliga season claims not only is he the greatest of all time, he’s better than Messi, Ronaldo and Pele combined!!!

‘I have more skill than Messi, score more goals than Cristiano and can maintain an erection longer than Pele’, scoffed the 32-year-old.

When asked if he thought he was better than Maradona too, Bendtner replied:

‘Never heard of her’.

However, not everyone shared the Dane’s opinion.

Bendtner’s former manager Arsene Wenger knows a thing or two about crap players having signed the majority of them.

‘On a scale of 1 to Francis Jeffers, Nicklas was a 9’.

‘I’d like to say I can’t believe he said that but I’d be lying’.

‘In fact, this might be the stupidest thing he’s done since he dropped his shorts at the Euros to reveal the name of a certain bookmaker’, said the Frenchman while struggling to zip up his coat.
