    Pele said...

    ..."one thing that is ruining futebol these days, is....player goes to say...err...uhh....Roma (kisses his tie, referring to shirt logo) I love Roma, then next minute, he joins Real Madrid (kisses his tie, refers to logo)...I love Madrid, there is no loyalty"

    100% agree with Pele. smartest thing he has said for a while.

    Thoughts? Is the lack of loyalty gonna kill the beautiful game?

    Whatever we say, it's never gonna be a difinitive answer. For the answer you have to goe back to the nature of football, Find that and then see how much loyality means for football!

    what pele said is nothing new, we've known this for a while. Even managers telling there players to kiss their shirt when they first score a goal to win the hearts of the fans. lack of loyalty is all down to the money now.

    We should jsut face it, these things from football are rare. God bless Totti & Zanetti.

    One of the only things Pele has ever said regarding football that makes sense, no?

    Does kissing the badge mean you pledge loyalty to that club? I don't think so

    Totally agree. It makes me laugh when I saw Robinho kissing the Real Madrid badge when he scored against, if I'm not wrong, Cadiz this season.

    What an absolute joke!

    I prefer someone honest & frank like Van Nistelrooy who said something along the lines of, "I could have made life easier for me if I said I'm a Man Utd fan and it's my childhood dream to join them but the truth is, I'm not," when asked whether he like Man Utd during one of his first interviews as a Man Utd player.

    for once I agree with him. all that stuff is pretty pathetic, specially when they leave the club after a small better deal.

    there are guys who play for some clubs for a reason and they get the right respect. Others should just do their work on the field and stop with their fake publicity love.

    Pele's comments are usually shitty, but in this case he's right.
    On the other hand how can a player preserve his loyalty with such amounts given?

    Traitor examples? Many! (with Figo on the top)
    As Helal said, god bless Totti, Javier and I'm adding Maldini also.
    Can't think of anyone else.

    What Pele said is a good thing...good because people in the buisness finally realize how pathetic it is when someone switches teams and kisses the badge as if they've been playing for that club for 10 years.
