On Thursday, at the age of 82, the Brazilian soccer legend Pelé, who was widely considered the finest player to ever play the game of soccer, passed away after a long and heroic battle with colon cancer.
Pelé was widely recognized as the best player to ever play the game of soccer. The loss of his life was a crushing blow to the soccer community all across the world.
Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pele, was born on October 23, 1940, in Três Corais, which is located in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Dondinho, a player for Fluminense, was born Joo Ramos do Nascimento, and Celeste Arantes was his mother. He was named after his father. Pelé is revered as the “King of Football” around the world.
Pele middle name, Thomas Edison, was chosen in honor of the well-known American inventor of the same name. He was the eldest of two children born to his parents.
Was Pelé a player in the MLS? Who was Pele’s team in Major League Soccer (MLS)?
Pele did play in the MLS, that is correct. Pele represented Santos in official matches of the Major League Soccer (MLS), which were held in the United States. These matches took place in the United States.
After waiting for an additional year, he ultimately made the decision to come out of semi-retirement and join the New York Cosmos, a team that competed in the North American Soccer League (NASL) for the 1975 season.
