Pele expects to enjoy a strong Brazilian taste for the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid, but asked on Friday night: “Am I the only one excited?”

The triple World Cup winner, still considered by many to be the greatest player in history, pointed to the strong presence of players from Selecao to be exhibited at the Stade de France in Paris.

He noted how Madrid have Vinicius Junior and Casemiro in their ranks, while also hinting that Alisson and Fabinho could have crucial roles for Liverpool in the showpiece match.

Pele could also have mentioned Madrid’s Marcelo, Eder Militao and semi-final comeback hero Rodrygo, who scored twice on death in the second match against Manchester City to save a seemingly lost cause.

Their Brazilian influence is strong, while Liverpool can also point to striker Roberto Firmino in their squad.

Pele wrote on Instagram: “I want to see a great final between @realmadrid and @liverpoolfc tomorrow. My friends @vinijr and @casemiro will face a tough challenge against @alissonbecker and @fabinho. Am I the only one who is excited about tomorrow’s match “I’m sure not!”

The 81-year-old Pele has recently been battling poor health as he has undergone treatment for colon cancer. He recently said he managed to find “peace” in the company of his wife Marcia and dog Cacau.

“Treatment is difficult, but feeling their love is the best medicine,” Pele said.
