Portuguese football agent Paulo Barbosa in conversation with Telecomasia.net shared the story of a personal meeting with Pelé. On December 29, the famed Brazilian national team football player died at the age of 83.
I met Pelé in the mid-80s in Brazil. He was a very humble man. Pelé was a friend of Eusébio, he called him his brother, and I met Pelé through Eusébio. They were very good friends. Eusébio was also friends with Yashin, then I met him, he was a very intelligent man.
