Maradona mocks Pele

Diego Maradona has mocked Pele after the Brazil legend compared himself to Ludwig van Beethoven and Michelangelo.

Maradona and Pele have a long history of bickering over who is the greatest footballer of all time, and the Brazilian recently told FIFA.com: "I was born to play football, just like Beethoven was born to write music and Michelangelo was born to paint."

At a press conference, Al-Wasl coach Maradona responded: "If Pele thinks he's the Beethoven of football then I'm Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and the Bono of football, because I have so much passion.

"Pele has said he's the Beethoven of football. I've never heard any Beethoven music in a match so, as I've told you before, anytime he takes the wrong pill he comes up with a crazy statement.

"Pele may have taken the morning pills at night time, so he should make sure he takes the right pills. In fact it would be better if he changed his doctor."
