Brazil legend Pele has paid the ultimate compliment to late West Ham and England captain Bobby Moore – by saying he was so good, he was like a Brazilian.
In an exclusive interview with Blowing Bubbles Monthly magazine, the three-time World Cup winner and lifelong friend of Moore paid tribute to West Ham’s legendary number six.
“Bobby Moore was a great player, a talented player and I kept telling people ‘look at this guy, he’s like a Brazlian,’ said the 76-year-old.
“He was a very nice guy, and I always compare him with the likes of Beckenbauer and Cruyff. I wish we had more players like him, because we don’t at the moment.”
