Pitch Productions' David Tryhorn pays tribute to Pelé
Following the passing of football legend Pelé, Pitch Productions’ David Tryhorn has paid tribute to the Brazilian icon.
Pitch produced Pelé, the 2021 released Netflix film, which told story of the man they called The King. The documentary covers the extraordinary 12-year period in which Pelé went from teenage superstar in 1958 to saviour in 1970.
Tryhorn, who directed the film, said Pelé left an indelible mark on football and his country.
“There was a period where Brazil went from almost an unknown footballing nation to become 12 year’s later the nation of football, and that was largely thanks to one man. He transformed the image of an entire nation.”
Tribute for the legend have flown this week as the world remembers one of the game’s greats.
