KAKA REVEALS BEST BALL STRIKER

Brazilian football icon Kaka has disclosed the best striker of the ball amongst his former teammates in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports.

Kaka left his mark on the footballing world during his career which came to an end in the United States in the colours of Major League Soccer (MLS) club Orlando City three years ago. The 38-year-old played for just four teams including boyhood club Sao Paulo where he started his career as a youth player. He was in the youth teams at Sao Paulo for six years from 1994 to 2000 before he made the step up to join the first team. Kaka is one of six players to win the FIFA World Cup, the Champions League and the Ballon d'Or Award. No active player can match that record.

The Brazilian has exclusively started in the Cup competitions for the north London giants and he has been hugely successful with seven goals. Out of those, he bagged a couple during the League Cup fourth round defeat to Liverpool and that has earned him plaudits from the Reds manager.


Speaking after the game, Klopp said: “Sepp van den Berg as well, he played an incredible game. That’s really difficult to deal with these guys. Martinelli’s pretty much the same age but he’s a talent of the century, he’s an incredible striker, so it’s really difficult. Then you have Mesut Ozil around and Willock right, who scored, by the way, a really nice one, so a team like Arsenal in a counter-attacking mood – we keep them deep, play around them, we lose the ball and then it’s really difficult.”
