I would like to explain this story that the media says that no player has attended Pele’s funeral five times. I speak for myself, even if I was in Brazil, I’m not sure if I would wake up even though I know Pele was the best ever. I don’t like being honored at this time, I’m not against anyone wanting to do it. I met Pele, had many times with him and had the opportunity to honor and honor him in life. I showed my love and admiration for him every moment and he always thanked me for it. No one would change the respect and admiration I had and still have for him for not going to the vigil. The best tribute in life and that’s what I did with a very clear conscience.”
