Brazil legend Pele believes Lionel Messi is currently the best footballer in the world but will need time to be considered as the greatest ever.

Some believe the Argentinian ace is on his way to being the best ever player after helping Barcelona dominate European football.
While triple World Cup winner Pele believes Messi is the best at present he said every generation produces its greats.
Asked what Messi has to do to be remembered as the best ever, Pele told Sky Sports News: "It is time - each generation has your own good player.
"Messi no doubt today is one of the best players, no doubt.
"You have some time ago (Diego) Maradona, you have (Michel) Platini, you have (Zinedine) Zidane, you know a few years ago Zidane was the best.
"In every generation you have one and at the moment Messi is the best."

Rooney praise

Pele also paid tribute to England striker Wayne Rooney, saying he would always want him in one of his sides.
He said: "Some people mention the players for technically but for me, in my team, he (Rooney) has a position because I prefer the player who plays with the heart than the player who plays only beautiful football.
"I want a player who plays for the team, and Rooney plays for the team."
