King Pelé had the opportunity to meet several Mexican players, but without a doubt the one with whom he had a very good anecdote was the one with whom he wanted to exchange the shirt with the number 10, for the number 8 in a curious commercial.
One of the international banks decided to unite Cuauhtémoc Blanco with King Pelé where Edson Arantes do Nascimento decided to give Cuauhtémoc Blanco the number 10 shirt and take number 8, this because of the commercial pattern in which they gave 8%.

* In full celebration of Cruz Azul, they filter the Uruguayan who would replace Luis Suárez
This commercial caused a sensation at the time, especially because it brought together two stars, one from Brazil and the other from Mexico, even recalling the final of the Confederations Cup when El Tri led by Cuauhtémoc Blanco defeated Ronaldinho’s Brazil.
What did Pelé think of Mexico?
King Pelé always considered that Mexico was the cradle of Latin American soccer and assured that little by little he will develop his talent better and one day achieve important things.
