Ignorant FIFA boss, Sepp Blatter, got everyone rather upset this week, after claiming Ronaldo was like a slave.
They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, however, it’s not a great endorsement when someone of Pele’s stature comes out directly slating what you have to say, as Blatter will now know.
“You are a slave if you work without a contract or you don’t get paid,” said Pele. “If you have a contract then in any job you have to finish the contract. I think that when he finishes his contract, then he should be free to go wherever he wants to go.”
