Orlando City's Kaka hints at retirement and reveals interest in coaching

Orlando City and FC Dallas both had an abundance of scoring chances, but their respective goalkeepers denied them all.

Kaka has told Globo Esporte that he is close to making a decision on his future but indicated that he could opt to retire from playing.

Earlier this month, Orlando City said they were in talks about Kaka returning for a fourth season.

And Globoesporte said he could do that, return to his native Brazil to play for Sao Paolo for a year or opt to bring down the curtain on his playing career.

Kaka, a Ballon d'Or and Champions League winner, the highest-paid player in Major League Soccer on over $7 million a year, also revealed that he planned to take a coaching course once he had finished playing.

The Brazil international said: "I finish playing a game and feel a lot of pain. My body starts to feel it, and it no longer brings me that much happiness, it takes a lot more to do the same job.

"Kids can play today and again tomorrow. I'm 35, I take longer to recover, it's a different rhythm. You can feel when the time is coming."

Speaking about how he would approach his future when the time came to stop playing, he added: "To do it like [Zinedine] Zidane is a good idea.

"He stopped, took some time away, decided if it was something he actually enjoyed, studied, did a course, build his way up.

"I'm that way inclined too. Now, there are people who believe I am already ready.

Last week, Orlando CEO Alex Leitao told the Orlando Sentinel that Kaka had "expressed his desire to play another year."

He added: "We gave him an offer and now he's with his family... I think he's thinking about the offer we gave him and we're just waiting for a response. So, we're in negotiations."

On Sunday, New York City FC midfielder Andrea Pirlo said he plans to retire at the end of the current MLS season.
