1. Every kid around the world who plays soccer wants to be Pele. I have a great responsibility to show them not just how to be like a soccer player, but how to be a man.
Football is simple but the hardest thing to do is play simple football.
Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
The goalkeeper is the jewel in the crown and getting at him should be almost impossible. It's the biggest sin in football to make him do any work.

Whoever invented football should be worshipped as a God.
Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.
All good athletes make mistakes; the great ones learn to make that mistake only once.
A lot of football success is in the mind. You must believe you are the best and then make sure that you are.
