Things don't look good for him right now...

He was a magnificant football player, but he just loved the drink to much.

Looks like the end may be near, they are saying that he won't last 24hrs and that was awhile ago....

The guy was amazing, he possed everything.. The skill on the ball, goal scoring, tackling, heading, he had all the attributes. Players like him only come along every so often. For Pele to say he was the greatest footballer ever is saying something.

Its such a shame that his personal life was a mess, if you put that aside and look at him for what he was, the greatest footballer ever...
