I suppose it's natural that people talk about the coincidences with Pele's career. But before everyone gets carried away let's see if I have anything like the talent, shall we?
I don't consider myself as the best player in the world. I'm not obsessed with individual titles. I'm much more interested in being part of a team which wins trophies.
I've never timed myself over 100m, but I have done a test over shorter distances, 20m or 30m, with and without the ball. What's strange is that I'm faster with the ball than without it. Some people are born for distance running and others for sprint
I want to enjoy the full pleasure of our victory, but then turn to new things I hope to achieve in football.
Pele is the greatest player in football history, and there would only be one Pele in the world.
Every time I went away I was deceiving my mum. I'd tell her I was going to school but I'd be out on the street playing football. I always had a ball on my feet.
It is marvellous for us all. I have said that after all I have suffered, every time I walk into a ground to play is a victory for me, so this is just wonderful.
I think we played a great game against Germany and brought joy to ourselves and the Brazilian people.
