The 2015 Gold Cup is shrouded in controversial decisions
November 15, 2015
Mexico defeated Jamaica with a final scoreboard of 3-1 and are the winner of the 2015 Gold Cup but it was a controversial and difficult path for the Mexican national side as they barely squeezed past Panama in the semifinals and it was only due to a number of dubious and questionable decisions from the referee in the pitch that Mexico managed to overcome Panama in the semifinal stages of the continental tournament.
In Mexico’s match against Panama, the referee Mark Geiger gave away a red card to Panama’s Luis Tejeda but this decision was a controversial one as the player was given a rather harsh punishment in the early stages and when it appeared as Panama was going to take the victory, in the very last moments of the match, the referee decided to give away 2 penalty kicks in favor of Mexico.
The quarter-finals match between Mexico and Costa Rica was another controversial one as the Mexican side was awarded with a last minute penalty kick which allowed Mexico to take the late victory.
After all of these incidents occurred, the Costa Rican Football Federation and the Panamanian Football Federation suggested that the members that form part of the Refereee Committee at CONCACAF to be removed from their respective positions.
Despite everything that had occurred, it didn’t take anything away from Mexico as all of the players and the manager were overwhelmed with joy and happiness as the Mexican national side proudly held the 2015 Gold Cup trophy and celebrated ecstatically. Continue Reading
Ricardo Kaka talks about what it’s like to play in the MLS
July 23, 2015
The Brazilian player Ricardo Kaka has gone from being the best player in the world to being a substitute player. Back in 2007 when Kaka was a player of Ac.Milan, he lifted the Ballon d’Or award and considered to be the absolute best player in the world of football.
During his period of time, Kaka was unstoppable and this was why Real Madrid decided to pay an astronomically high price tag of €68.5 million in order to sign the Brazilian midfielder from Ac.Milan but his stay in Real Madrid was underwhelming as he was continuously being hit with injuries which kept him outside of the pitch and was eventually released to the MLS side Orlando City.
Kaka has already played in the American League as the experienced player has made over 15 appearances in the MLS and he has revealed details concerning how this shift of playing in top European clubs and into the MLS has been.
Former star of Ac.Milan, Ricardo Kaka said: “It’s a great experience. I’m so happy with what I decided. Everything is nil. It’s a new experience, with a lot of difference between playing here and in Europe. But good things, not bad things.I’ve been here once with the national team and it’s a great city. When I’ve been here before, we went out and knew a little bit of the city. I’ll try tohaveanotheropportunitytogoaround.” Continue Reading
Kaka sees Ronaldo as best Player of all time
February 5, 2015
Former Brazil international Kaka says that his international teammate Ronaldo is the best player he has ever seen. This is quite a great acclaim for the former Barcelona and Real Madrid striker, who is one of the leading goal scorers in the FIFA World Cup tournament.
Kaka has played with Ronaldo, while at his peak, only at international level. It was not until the striker joined AC Milan during the latter years of his career when Kaka played with him. Even though Kaka has played with some incredible players like Cristiano Ronaldo and also coming up against names like Lionel Messi, he considers Ronaldo to be the best.
This is also the widespread notion and many believe that Ronaldo would have gone to score even more goals had his body allowed. Continue Reading
Kaka to retire in North American League
January 7, 2015
Former AC Milan midfielder Kaka says that he is ready to retire in the North American league.
The Brazilian will be officially completing the move to Orlando City FC in the next few weeks. His loan spell with São Paulo comes to a close just as the Brazilian season has ended. Kaka has been at São Paulo for the last few months after leaving Milan. He straightaway joined Orlando City but since they were yet to join the MLS at that point. Now that Orlando City are ready to join the MLS in the 2015 season, Kaka is set to begin pre-season with the club.
MLS is on the verge of attracting several stars to the league, but one of the most iconic among them – Frank Lampard – looks unlikely to join the league for the start of the campaign. The former Chelsea midfielder moved to New York City FC but he was immediately loaned back to the Premier League. His return with Manchester City has been extremely productive and Lampard has been one of the important players in the City team despite his short spell with the club. Not many expected him to have the same impact given that he was 36 years old.
Kaka, though, believes that the MLS could be a major league going forward and will be capable of attracting top names at a much younger age. Jermain Defoe is one of the big names who has joined the MLS at the start of his 30s. “MLS is making big steps, big progress. I’m not here to retire, I’m here to win. I had another opportunity to earn more than they are paying me here,” said Kaka, who will become the most expensive player in the MLS. He will be reportedly paid just over £ 7 million per season.
Kaka In Suprise Leave
May 20, 2014
AC Milan midfielder Kaka has dropped a bombshell by suggesting that he could leave the club – just after 12 months of joining in the summer – at the end of the season. Kaka returned to the club where he is regarded as an idol on a free transfer from Real Madrid. However, the Brazilian has been unable to impact the club in the same way as he did in his first spell. Physically, he has been struggling to impose himself in the Italian league. The 31-year-old has suffered several knee injuries in the last few years and this seems to have taken the edge out of his game.
After yet another disappointing season for Milan in which they are looking like missing out on Champions League, Kaka has been linked with an exit from the club. The player himself has admitted that the prospect of playing in the MLS is something that interests him a lot. Several clubs like LA Galaxy have been linked with a move for his services. Even David Beckham’s upcoming franchise has been linked with a potential destination for the midfielder. This is because of the good relationship he has with Beckham.
Kaka revealed that he will be holding end of the season talks with vice president Adriano Galliani.
“At the end of the season I will speak to (chief executive Adriano) Galliani to understand what his ideas and those of the club are. I would like to play in the United States and if I was to leave the club I would go to America. I don’t think Seedorf expected to find himself in such a difficult situation. It is part of life to experience strange periods and every team has had a crisis at some stage. This is Milan’s time to have one,” said Kaka.
