Kaka Performing Well In MLS

The Brazilian Ricardo Kaka kick-started his career during his first tenure as a player of Ac.Milan, in the Italian club is where Kaka managed to breakout and earn a number of accolades before eventually being sold to Real Madrid for a price of €65 million but everything started to fall apart for him in Spain as he was being plagued with injuries and couldn’t get enough playing time in the Spanish club.

After 4 disappointing seasons with Real Madrid, Kaka decided to make his return to Ac.Milan and the Brazilian was able to display a few flashes of brilliance but he was ultimately sold to the Major League Soccer team Orlando City.

Orlando City will enter the Major League Soccer in January of 2015 and Kaka was transferred to Sao Paulo for a few months until the expected date.

Even at his 32 years of age Kaka still continues making a huge a presence in Sao Paulo as the head coach of the team, Muricy Ramalho explained:

“We didn’t doubt that Kaka would play well. We suffered a lot last year. Kaka arrived to give the team the final touch,” Ramalho said immediately after yesterday’s match.

Ricardo Kaka is a consistent player in Sao Paulo as he has played in just about every single match for his club and the former Ac.Milan player established himself as one of the main attacking outlets for Sao Paulo along with Alexandre Pato, Alan Kardec and Paulo Henrique Ganso. That combination of attacking players that Muricy Ramalho has at his disposal is widely regarded to be the most potent offensive quartet in the Brazilian league and it has helped Sao Paulo on claiming the top spots of the Brazilian league.

Messi Extremely Disappointed To Lose World Cup

Argentine superstar Lionel Messi has claimed that he is extremely disappointed to see his team lose in the final of the World Cup 2014. A solitary goal from Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze was enough to seal a 1-0 victory for Germany. The Europeans had been waiting for this World Cup title since 1990, but the wait had been slightly longer for Argentina after having won it in 1986. Much was expected from the team due to the comparisons between Messi and former Argentina great Maradona. Despite having won every major title with Barcelona, Messi still is looking for his first major title with Argentina.

Maradona, however, led Argentina to World Cup success almost entirely on his own. Messi finished as the best player in the World Cup and received an individual accolade. However, the 27-year-old later stated that this individual accolade meant nothing to him since he wanted to win the World Cup more than anything. Messi and Argentina created few opportunities over the course of the 120 minutes. Germany have been the most decisive team in the tournament, as they have played wonderful attacking football.

The next World Cup in Russia will see Messi enter into the latter stages of his career. The Barcelona superstar will be hoping to put behind this disappointment as soon as possible.

“We deserved a bit more after the match we played. It’s very painful to lose in the manner that we did because we were so close to penalties. I think that in this World Cup we deserved a different [outcome] because we had the chances. In these moments the prize doesn’t interest me at all. We wanted to take home the trophy and enjoy it with all the people in Argentina. We got to the final and it’s a long time since Argentina got past the semi-finals,” said Messi.
