to become Ballon d’Or winner and FIFA World Player of the year.
•In seven years since then,Ronaldo and Messi have fought for the crown, but 2007 was Kaka’s year;single-handedly obilerating Manchester United over two legs in Champions League at semi-final at AC Milan on his way to winning it and ending the tournament ad top-scorer.
•He was one of the world’s most expensive player behind Zenedine Zidane after his £56million transfer to Real Madrid.Today he is the most successful player in the US.
•He had a financially secure upbringing that allowed him to focus on school and football at the same time.
•His career at Rral Madrid was not that successful considering the fact that José Mourinho made him sit on the bench and lacked consistent playing,yet Kaka’s capacity to forgive,forgo blame and bitterness,shows he’s a true gentleman who holds no grudges.
•That humbleness is,perhaps down to his deeply religious upbringing.An iconic image remains from where Kaka finally won the Champions League for the first time.AC Milan beat Liverpool to avenge their astonishing victory and he had a message to purvey.
At the final whistle after having their hands at both the goals,he bent down to his knees and stripped off his jersey to reveal underneath a vest with ‘I belong to Jesus’ written on it,he held his hand out wide,palms facing up,closed his eyes and raised his head to the heavens.
The world’s eyes were upon a man transcending to the top of his sport.
•Kaka was immersed in Christian faith long before a miracle occurred in his life involved a frightening accident aged 18 ,broke his back and could have paid his football career.
Ricardo Kaka is not just a soccer player.He is the sun shining on soccer field.When he smiles it fills everyone up with an enormous sense of joy.When he gets benched it’s like an avalanche of earthquake destroying every building but when he scores even the opponents side has to clap.Some say ‘Bend it like Beckham’ but I say ‘Ball up like Kaka’.
Being a Die-hard Ricardo Kaka fan since very long,I admire everything about him.I look up to him for inspiration.
