It’s probably the highest accolade in football to be known by one name. Just ask Phil Neville. Anyway, it’s Pele’s birthday today, he’s 69, and he is probably the sixth greatest footballer to ever don a pair of boots – after Maradona, Zidane, Best, Cruyff, and Jan Molby – hence we thought we’d get him a gift. After three minutes of very casual discussion mixed with burger consumption, it boiled down to a toss up between a hilarious hat, or a clip of the greatest ever. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Pele!
