    Newell's 5 games, (GF 2- GA 5). GF 0.400 pg
    Argentina 91 games, (GF 52- GA 32). GF 1.505 pg

    For Argentinos juniors Maradona played 166 games but I don't know which games he played, so I counted all games in the season.

    Where did you get your stats for Pelé’s Assists? Or where did your source get it from?

    Roughly 30% of his career haul goals
    Its a substantial amount of recorded footage for a player of his time IMO
    Together with the data you can build a picture.
    Without it you are just collating data without context

    For numbers there is this
    https://www.afc-ajax.info/en/soccer-player/Johan-Cruijff
    https://www.fotmob.com/news/10u86fe6yag3n1asrto25rorxc-johan-cruyff:-the-numbers-that-made-a-legend

    In a serious comparison you shouldn't include goals/Assists recorded in NASL
    That is just my opinion
