Kaka Retires: Former clubs and team-mates pay tribute

Posted December 18, 2017

Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Ricardo Izecson Kaka who won World Cup in 2002 announced his retirement.

"I needed some time to think and make a very quiet decision, very calm and very conscious of what I would like for my professional life", he said.

Posting a black and white image of himself wearing the famous "I belong to Jesus" t-shirt he sported in the Champions League final against Liverpool, Kaka issued a statement reflecting on his career.

The 2007 Ballon d'Or victor confirmed that he would not renew his contract at MLS side Orlando City in October.

After playing AC Milan Kaka nearly joined to Manchester United.

Two Palestinians killed in Gaza, Israel denies claim of attack
Eyewitnesses and paramedics said an Israeli missile hit a motorbike, killing two riders, which Israeli army spokesman has denied. On Monday night, the Israeli military said it hit Hamas positions after intercepting rockets coming from the blockaded enclave.

Following his €67 million transfer to Real Madrid, however, he entered a somewhat patchier stage in his career but now, with all said and done, he has most certainly done enough to warrant his legendary status.

Kaka was a free agent after leaving Orlando in October. "He stopped, took some time away, decided if it was something he actually enjoyed, studied, did a course, built his way up".

In conclusion Kaka confirmed that he has been in talks with former club Milan stating that: "It's true that recently Milan made me an offer, we will see". He also won the 2002 World Cup with Brazil, who he was capped for 92 times from 2002 to 2016, and the Ballon d'Or as best player in the world in 2007. He scored 29 goals for his country and featured at three World Cups. Then he returned to Milan in 2013 and after settled in Orlando City until nowadays.

He visited the San Siro in November and met with the club's new owners, so don't be surprised if Kaka takes a position with the Rossoneri in the near future.
