Kaka eyes MLS Cup with Orlando, doesn't rule out Brazil return

Orlando City's marquee signing Kaka speaks to the media ahead of his side's MLS opener against New York City FC.
Orlando City co-owner Flávio Augusto da Silva expressed his excitement ahead of his side's MLS season opener on Sunday.
Orlando City SC's recent signing and MLS veteran Brek Shea spoke to ESPN FC's Adrian Healey about his move back the MLS , as well as his side's season opener against New York City FC.
ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman discusses the attributes of Orlando City SC and NYCFC and what sets the two MLS sides apart.

For someone who is about to take a huge leap of faith, Kaka sounds remarkably calm on the other end of the phone.

It's the last Thursday in February, 10 days before his and Orlando City's Major League Soccer debut against fellow newcomer New York City FC. It's not the first time in his career that Kaka has arrived at a club and league surrounded by heavy expectations; one just has to think back to his eye-watering 57 million pound ($87.5 million) move from Milan to Real Madrid in 2009, for example.


Chelsea closer to Premier League title, but are Everton in a relegation scrap?

Manchester United grab another three points, while Aston Villa break their losing streak with a vital extra-time winner.
A full slate of midweek fixtures saw Tim Sherwood lead Villa to victory, an apologetic Ben Foster and a water bottle showdown between Gus Poyet and Steve Bruce.
The ESPN FC panel discuss why Chelsea have been able to maintain their lead atop the Premier League as they held on for a 1-nil victory over West Ham.

It's time to run the rule over the Heroes and Villains of matchday 28 in the Premier League, as there were plenty of exciting midweek fixtures.


Twice, Jonas Gutierrez has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Twice, he has beaten it. To fight that battle with courage and dignity, whether that battle is won or lost, is an achievement that outstrips any of the trivialities this column covers from week to week. To fight it twice, to beat it twice and to return to one of the world's most demanding...

Is FIFA president Sepp Blatter losing support in South America?

FIFA president Sepp Blatter took the Paraguay presidential helicopter as his election rivals went by bus to see the Paraguay president.

What does it mean when something doesn't happen? Is inaction actually an action?

Sepp Blatter left CONMEBOL's congress this week without the endorsement of the South American Football Confederation. In the past, it was downright automatic, thanks to his long history with various power brokers in that part of the world. He was close to Brazilian FA boss Ricardo Teixeira, son-in-law of his former boss and predecessor, one-time FIFA president Joao Havelange, and to Julio Grondona, who headed the Argentine...

Manchester United face Liverpool in fascinating fight for top four

It's down to the wire in the Premier League as Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool vie for a Champions League spot.

Manchester United simply do not make sense this season. Every game appears to bring a fresh nadir in the quality of performance; each week a fresh layer of despair is added to how joyless this team seems to have become.

Heads are shaken as another anemic Angel Di Maria performance makes him look a shadow of the player we saw in the early weeks of the season; eyes are rubbed as those present wonder whether this is the same Radamel Falcao who was the deadliest centre-forward in Europe a couple of...

The Old Firm, Rangers vs. Celtic, remains a derby like no other

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley sounds off on Celtic's 2-0 win over Rangers in the Scottish League Cup, where he feels the standards have dropped immensely and as if two pub teams were playing against each other.
Just like old times: Rangers and Celtic faced off in the Scottish League Cup semifinal at Hampden Park, the first Old Firm match in almost three years.

In the latest edition of ESPN FC's derbies series, which features eyewitness insights into some of the biggest rivalries in world football, Chris Jones visits Glasgow for the first game in three years between Celtic and Rangers. 

GLASGOW, Scotland -- Glasgow wakes up slowly on winter Sunday mornings, even if the Old Firm is waiting, even if the first match between Celtic and Rangers in nearly three years is only hours away. It's not as though the center of the city was shimmering at dawn, lit...

MLS players, not owners, hold historic leverage in CBA negotiations

ESPN FC's Jeff Carlisle reports that the MLS Players Union and MLS are still negotiating and there is reason to be more optimistic for the 2015 season.
ESPN's Taylor Twellman and Bob Ley speak out with regards to the possibility of MLS players going on strike.
ESPN FC's Taylor Twellman contends that a strike would be extremely damaging to Major League Soccer as a whole.

In the history of labor negotiations that led to work stoppages in sports, the prospect of Major League Soccer's 2015 season screeching to a halt before it even starts as a result of a player strike could rank as one of the most unfortunate.

Aside from those drinking the Kool-Aid, those who have always tabbed soccer to be the next big spectator sport in America, virtually no one thought MLS would be where it is today. An average attendance above 19,000 fans a game? Insane crowds in Portland and Seattle?...
