Neymar mourns Pele: he’s gone, but his magic remains the same, forever Bailey.
On December 30, King Pele died at the age of 82. Neymar paid tribute to Bailey on social media.
Neymar: I read this sentence somewhere in my life, at some point: “before Bailey, 10 was just a number.” But this sentence is incomplete. I would say that before Pele football was just a sport and Pele changed everything. He turned football into art, into entertainment, he gave voice to the poor, to blacks, especially: he brought visibility to Brazil. Thanks to Pele, football and Brazil have improved their status! He’s gone, but his magic is still there. Forever Bailey!
