    Hi Michael,

    Wonderful job with the site, but I’m curious about your MessivPele page, what was your source for the number of Pele’s assists, as far as I know, it wasn’t a considered stat during his playing days and was not recorded

      You’re completely right.

      In fact, this data must be updated now. When I published it first, I used the most accepted value, but now there are some researches that have found different results.
