The singer, who has just released a new album, returned to Twitter on his meeting with the legendary footballer who died on Thursday.

On Friday, Michel Polnareff, very active on the social network Twitter, commented on an article from 2016 in the daily l’Equipe referring to his rather unexpected meeting with King Pelé. “Exactly, he gave me his equipment and we had a wonderful time together,” he wrote.

In this interview given to the sports newspaper in 2016, Polnareff explained that he was “crazy about Pelé” with whom he was able to discuss at length at Régine in New York, at the time when the Brazilian genius had signed up with the legendary Cosmos team: “I was surprised to discover how small (1.73 m), adorable and short-sighted he is!” He then asked Pelé how he managed to see the ball: “I can’t see the ball. I feel it. My foot is a magnet for the ball, that’s the only explanation. I never looked at where the goals are because I can’t see them!” would have answered the footballer, whose proven myopia did not prevent him from winning three World Cups.

Bouncing on a response from a tweeter welcoming “his incredible luck to have met him”, Michel Polnareff, replied in his inimitable style, a mixture of narcissism and self-mockery “Him eausea” (Him too).

The star, who gave Paris Match an exclusive interview in November has released a new album, “Polnareff sings Polnareff”, a comeback in the form of a challenge as he explained to Philippe Manoeuvre: “Why am I doing it? To respond to a desire from the public, whom I want to please, and not, as one might think, because I no longer have any inspiration. That’s completely wrong, I compose stuff all the time! But the challenge was significant.
