Pele’s 16-year-old son has competed in a Santos shirt for the first time.
The Brazil legend tweeted a picture of his son Joshua competing for Santos in an Under-17 tournament.
“It is a great pleasure to have my son, Joshua, wear the shirt of Santos Football Club for the U17 championship,” he tweeted (in Portuguese).
“What a thrill it will be to see him playing for my club!”
Pele is a Santos legend, having scored more than 1,000 goals for the Brazilian club afer being signed at just 15.
When he scored his 1,000th career goal, on November 19, 1969, fans ran on to the pitch to celebrate with him, and since then that day is known as ‘Pele Day’.
