There has been mourning in Brazil since three-time world champion Pelé, the only player with three World Cup titles, died on Thursday aged 82 after losing his battle with cancer.

Fans were hoping that big Santos players like Neymar, Rodrygo and Giovanni would attend.

Nevertheless, former great players such as Zico, Romario, Ronaldo, Kaka and Ronaldinho.

But none of these turned up, sparking outrage on social media.

None of the world champions in the 2002 team attended.

Just one from the 1994 team.

Kaka has been particularly hard hit.

In a recent article, he complained that Brazil does not honor its sporting heroes well enough.

You are better at it abroad, Kaka expressed himself.

Neymar sent his father

"You didn't even show up at the funeral for the man who paved the way for you to have the life you have," writes one person on Kaka's Instagram, something that has attracted 5,000 comments.

Neymar sent his father as a representative, which also provoked anger.

Neymar then closed down the comment section to outsiders.

Only approved people were allowed to write on the Paris SG player's account.

Furthermore, it is noted that no foreign players came to Pelé's funeral.

Pelé often said that he was too emotionally affected to attend funerals.

Now he lies next to his father and brother, whose funerals he never attended, AP writes.
