Did Pele ever play for Barcelona?
Pele played Barça for the fourth and final time in a pre-season friendly played in Cadiz in 1974. Led by Johan Cruyff, the Catalans cruised to a 4-1 win against a Santos side that was but a shadow of its glorious past, with Pele on the verge of departure for the USA.
What football did Pele play?
The Brazilian national team wanted to play in the European style but Pelé didn’t like that style. He had his own free style. Some people called it Samba football. Eventually he was picked for the squad – luckily for Brazil.
