In an interview with EFE, King Pele challenged the five-time Golden Ball winner Cristiano Ronaldo. The Brazilian legend hopes to see the Portuguese beat his career record in terms of goals scored.
Despite his age (34), Cristiano Ronaldo is still motivated to go further in his career. The Portuguese wants to beat all possible records. After scoring a hat-trick this Thursday against Lithuania (6-0), the Portuguese is getting closer to Ali Daei’s record, but King Pele’s remains a major challenge for the time being.
“I hope that with the number of goals I have scored, and there have been many, he will have the health and strength to reach 1,283 goals. Let’s wait and see,” said the legend Pele about Cristiano. It remains to be seen whether the Juventus striker will rise to the challenge.
