Pele vs. Maradona; Beethoven vs. Rock 'n' Roll

MOST COMMENTED

Diego Maradona has responded to Pele comparing himself to Ludwig von Beethoven and Michelangelo.

Pele recently told FIFA.com: "I was born to play soccer, just like Beethoven was born to write music and Michelangelo was born to paint."

Maradona responded: "If Pele thinks he's the Beethoven of soccer then I'm Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and the Bono of soccer, because I have so much passion.

"Pele has said he's the Beethoven of soccer. I've never heard any Beethoven music in a match so, as I've told you before, anytime he takes the wrong pill he comes up with a crazy statement. Pele may have taken the morning pills at night time, so he should make sure he takes the right pills. In fact it would be better if he changed his doctor."
