RIO DE JANEIRO (BRAZIL) – Zoca, Pelé's younger brother (two years younger) died in a hospital in Santos where he was hospitalized for prostate cancer. Santos reports on its social profiles.
Zoca also tried his hand at football, arriving at the first Santos team where he played in 1961 and 1962, putting together 15 games and 4 goals.
Then he stopped preferring to devote himself to family business. Pele, according to the newspaper 'Folha de Sao Paulo, does not know if he will be able to be present at the funeral of his brother, to whom he was very attached, due to his health.
Before learning about his brother's death, Pele had been interviewed by Thiago Asmar for Canal Pilhado about the strongest players of all time.
“I am the strongest footballer of all time. Why are they better than the others? Because everyone compares to me ..
Cristiano Ronaldo is not as talented as Neymar on a technical level, but he is more skilled in all the other qualities that make a great player.
It is very difficult to compare these three, for example Messi is not a goleador. I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the strongest in the world. He is the most consistent, but one cannot forget Messi, who however is not a gunner. "
