  • End of an Era: Brazil Legend Kaka Officially Announces His Retirement From Football

Brazilian midfielder Kaka has announced his retirement from football. "In a very conscious manner, I came to the conclusion that the time has come to end my career as a professional player".

One of the finest footballers of his generation has finally called it a day after spells at AC Milan, Real Madrid, Sao Paulo and Orlando City.

"Father, It was much more than I could ever imagined". Thank you and now I'm ready for the next journey. "In Jesus name. Amem".

During a storied career, the hugely talented attacking midfielder also starred at Real Madrid and finished his playing days at USA club Orlando City in Major League Soccer.

In a sixteen year professional career, Kaka won the 2002 World Cup for Brazil, making 92 appearances and scoring 29 goals in all for his country. "Then I asked some people very close to me - my parents, my brother, my girlfriend and my brother's wife, there are five people - I asked them to pray". I would like to take part in a club in a form more ... a manager, a sporting director, someone that stays between the pitch and the club.




He said Milan, with whom he won the Champions League in 2007, had offered him a role but did not specify the exact nature of the job or say if he would accept it.

"I would like to join a club as a sports director, someone who stands between the field and the club".

He also indicated he could continue his post-playing career in football.

His four seasons in the Spanish capital were ravaged by injury, before returning to Milan in 2013 for one season, before finishing up his career Stateside with the newly formed Orlando City.
