Pele admits he's a big fan of Pep Guardiola's Barcelona.
The Brazilian places the Catalan side amongst the best teams in the history of the sport:
â€śIâ€™ve been watching this BarĂ§a side a lot lately and theyâ€™re like Santos were in my heyday, or the great Benfica, Ajax, AC Milan and Real Madrid sides. They all set the standard in their day,â€ť he said.
"The key to their success was the fact they had settled line-ups over a long period of time. Donâ€™t forget that BarĂ§a is the core of the Spanish team. Thereâ€™s a connection there, just as there was between Ajax and the Dutch national team all those years ago and between Santos and Brazil.â€ť
