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.”
“I think it’s a change of values. I can teach them some of the experience I’ve had in my career and, for sure, I’ve learned a lot from them. We have very good players; a lot of them play for the national teams and it’s good.”
Ricardo Kaka is a regular starter in Orlando City and the Brazilian is trying to help the MLS club in climbing into higher spots of the American League as they are currently positioned in the middle section.
