Platini Guaranteed Not To Take On Blatter For FIFA Presidency

Doh! Whatever Pele predicts, it is almost guaranteed to be wrong and the outcome is usually the complete opposite of the great footballer's prophecies (see examples here at Pele's Pathetic Unprophetic Predictions).

In fact, there is no Pele's Law but there is Scolari's Theory, something previously coined on this blog (see end of this post).

Here is Pele’s latest prediction for the upcoming FIFA elections on 1 June 2011, when president Sepp Blatter will seek a fourth 4-year term:
Uefa chief may take on Blatter for top Fifa job (SCMP; paywall)

Uefa president Michel Platini might run against Sepp Blatter for the Fifa presidency, Brazilian great Pele said.

"Maybe Platini will run for that," Pele said. "It's a good opportunity."

As mentioned previously, we should perhaps make use of Pele’s remarkable powers of prediction contradiction toward the global goal of World peace and goodwill for all humankind. Surely that would be Pele’s greatest ever and ultimate goal?

Pele, who is currently in Singapore, will arrive in Hong Kong on Sunday 6 March for three days. It would be fantastic if Pele were to make as many predictions as possible (clarification: Pele should make as many negative predictions as possible about society's problems). With Pele's track record for being spectacularly wrong, he could conceivably end up being a saint! Just imagine, Pele—the world's greatest-ever footballer and the patron saint of contradictions.

The Theory of Scolari

Remember, there is no Pele’s Law, but there is Scolari’s Theory which goes:
“I believe Pele knows nothing about football. His analysis always turns out to be wrong. If you want to win a title, you have to listen to Pele and then do the opposite.”

(who helped Brazil win the 2002 World Cup ... following Pele's infamous prediction that his national team "won’t even get past the group stages".)
