Kaka to watch AC Milan play Roma - but won't be returning as director

Craig Burley explains why he backs Milan for a top-four finish for the first time since 2013 as the FC crew reveal their Serie A season predictions.

Kaka said he would be in Italy next weekend to see his former club AC Milan face Roma in Serie A, but that a permanent move back to the Rossoneri is not part of his immediate plans.

The 36-year-old ended his playing career at Orlando City last year and he has been linked with a return to Milan, where compatriot Leonardo and former teammate Paolo Maldini have recently assumed influential managerial roles.

However, he says he wants to dedicate himself to his family in the near future and only move...

Kaka, Sahin, Alves, others join Harvard Business School's team

A while ago, we learned that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin had been accepted onto a course at the prestigious Harvard Business School.

By attending the Ivy League institution in Boston, Sahin followed in the footsteps of other famous footballing names such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Gerard Pique.

Indeed, the 2018 sports management six-a-side team is heavily...

Kaka: Jose Mourinho relationship 'respectful, but complicated' at Real Madrid

Kaka admitted to having a difficult time trying to impress Jose Mourinho during their time together at Real Madrid and told UOL their personal relationship did not suffer even though he did not play as much as he thought he deserved.

The midfielder joined Madrid from AC Milan for €65 million in summer 2009 but never showed his best form amid a series of injuries and returned to Milan on a free transfer four years later.

He made 85 appearances and provided 20 goals and 27 assists in three seasons...

Kaka's spectacular run with Milan and Brazil overshadowed by his successors

Relive the career highlights of Kaka since his move to Orlando City as he's set to leave the club at season's end.

Before the reign of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, there was Kaka.

The Brazilian, who announced his retirement on Sunday, was the last man to win the FIFA World Player of the Year award (in 2007) before it became the exclusive property of the Portuguese and the little Argentine.

When judged alongside the standards of those two, Kaka clearly suffers by comparison. But we are not living in a normal age. The technical quality coupled with the consistent quest for excellence of Messi and...
