After the recent death of Pelé on December 29, endless memories and anecdotes have begun to emerge from people and fans who had the opportunity to live with the soccer star both in his personal life and at some point in his career as a soccer player.
Undoubtedly, one of the most popular memories is that of Isabel Lascuráin, the member of the musical group Pandora, who assures that the Brazilian player tried to win her over after they met during the soccer World Cup that took place in Mexico. in 1986.
The revelation of the 62-year-old singer was given during an interview for the YouTube program pureglow, presented by Gloria Calzada. Under the theme “Remembering the 80’s”, the artists recalled many moments that they lived together at that time and during the talk, Isabel recalled how she met Pelé, as well as the approach she had with him.
According to what was said by the Pandora member, she met the “king” of soccer during a dinner at a restaurant where she was accompanied by Manuel Mijares and Emmanuel. That day, she gave her disc to Pelé and the former player was not only impressed with it, but also did his best to invite her out of it.
Once he came to my house, but the normal thing was that he called; my brother answered and ran up to tell me that he was calling Pelé: ‘What nerves!’. I knew he wanted me, he was several years older than me. I was 25 years old, but I knew that I wanted to have dinner.

Isabel reported that Pelé contacted her house three times, in which she gave him some pretexts for not going out with him, because she had two reasons for not accepting the soccer star’s invitations. The first was the big age difference between them, while the second was that he was probably already in a relationship.
He called me like three times. My dad, very nervous, called me and told me what’s up. I told him that I didn’t even like him. I didn’t even like him and he was married.
Despite the fact that the interview where the member of Pandora recounted the time she met Pelé and assured that she did not like him a bit was two years ago, given the recent death of the Brazilian soccer player, she regained fame and went viral on networks social after Isabel Lascuráin shared a photograph with him on her Instagram account.
