SAO PAULO (AP) -- Pele visited Santos' players to give his support ahead of the Copa Libertadores final.

Pele stopped by the team's training center and talked to players before they left for Uruguay on Tuesday for the first leg of the final against Penarol on Wednesday.

Santos is trying to win its third Copa Libertadores, the first since Pele was the team's biggest star in 1962 and '63.

Pele joked with Neymar about his Mohawk hairstyle, saying he was copying his hairdo from the 1958 World Cup. Pele showed an old magazine photo that showed him sporting the same hairstyle.
