If scientists can get ridiculous amounts of money for digging up some old dinosaur bones in the middle of nowhere, then surely the talent that was unearthed by de Brito was worth a pretty penny. Just imagine if Pele was never given the opportunity? We're shuttering too.
He was discovered by fellow Brazilian, Waldemar de Brito, who proclaimed Pele would be the greatest football player in the world.
