Pele feels Arsenal were unlucky to have missed out on European glory in Paris on Wednesday night.

The game´s greatest-ever player was impressed by the Gunners´ performance in the Champions League final at the Stade de France and felt Barcelona were fortunate to snatch victory. The Premiership side played most of the game with 10 men after goalkeeper Jens Lehmann was sent off but they led until goals in the 76th and 81st minutes saw Barca take the title.

"It is good to see a final like that, with emotion like that," Brazil legend Pele told PA Sport. "The game was good but I think Barcelona were a little bit lucky."
