Brazilian midfielder Kaka retires at age 35

Kaka is best known for his remarkable spell at Serie A giants AC Milan, where for a spell of six years, he played a crucial role in an era of dominance that the club - to this day - are struggling to live up to.

Former Brazil attacking midfielder Kaka has announced his retirement from football following a decorated career at both club and global level. He was part of the Brazil squad that lifted the global trophy in 2002. "Thank you! I'm now ready for the next journey", he posted on Twitter, alongside a picture of himself in a T-shirt labelled "I belong to Jesus". Kaka retires having won a Ballon D'or, Champions League, and World Cup among other accolades.

"I prepared a lot to be a professional player and I want to prepare for this new role, I want to see a little outside. I'd rather take part as a manager or sporting director".

"The fact that I have had success as a professional player does not mean that I will be a good director, so I want to prepare for it from now on; study, monitor, be closer to some clubs, especially one where I played".

Kaka moved to Europe in 2003 to join Milan and enjoyed the best spell of his career in Italy. But in the end, he arrived at Real Madrid for 67m euros nearly at the same time with Ronaldo. Also, the board told he would be welcomed in the club in the different role. A graceful midfielder, Kaka won 92 caps for Brazil.

The 35-years-old signed for three seasons upon his arrival from Sao Paulo in 2015, and in view of the club's decision and his inability to maintain his status on another MLS team, he accepted retirement to start a career as a coach.
