Zico regrets for not being able to meet Pele during his visit to Kolkata 

Zico, the Brazilian legend who is also the manager of FC Goa in the ongoing Indian Super League, laments for not being able to meet another Brazilian legend, Pele during his three-day visit to Kolkata from 11th October to 13th October.

Zico, on the eve of his team’s crucial home match against Atletico De Kolkata in Margao today, said that despite the fact he is aware of Pele’s Kolkata visit after a span of 38 years, he would not be able to meet him as FC Goa will be busy with its ISL engagement that time by participating in an away match against North East United.

The former Brazilian World Cupper said, “I would have liked to meet him. But now it would not be possible as I will be in Guwahati with my team for the ISL match.”

Zico however, still seems optimistic about his chances of winning the election for the post of Fifa president, scheduled to be held on 26th February next year. The Brazilian World Cupper, commenting on the issue, said, “I have all my documents to the Fifa and I hope even I have a chance of winning the election.” 

Although it has been learnt that Zico has not yet received the support from five nations which is mandatory to compete in the Fifa president’s election. The Brazilian striker who had struck 48 goals for his country, commented that for the improvement of national team’s performance Brazil needs either a man like Tele Santana or a person like late Socretes, the midfielder who died a couple of years ago. Zico said on Tuesday, “Socretes was simply a genius, both a footballer as well as a human being. He had such innovative and constructive ideas to for the improvement of the game that it would have benefitted Brazilian football a lot. Still, today every time I miss him.”
