Kaka says that he wants his Club to win MLS Club

Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Kaka says that he is very much looking forward to winning the MLS cup in the near future.

The Brazilian made the move to the MLS by signing for Orlando City FC. His arrival has increased a lot of interest in the sport in this region.

Even though the move may not be the same glamorous £ 65 million move to Real Madrid that happened in 2009, but Kaka is very much looking forward to playing for his new club. Unlike some of the other top names like Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard have also joined the MLS, Kaka will be available from the start.

David Beckham undoubtedly remains the big-name player who played in the MLS over the last decade. Kaka admits that Beckham helped improve the profile of the MLS in its huge way and players like him can only hope to maintain and build upon it. Comparing the average spectatorship between the MLS and the Brazilian state Championship, Kaka said that it is very healthy to see figures of almost 20,000 fans for every game at some clubs. In comparison, Brazil averages just over 15,000 fans during the state Championship. Despite being at the end of his career, Kaka has also not given up hope of playing for Brazil one-day.

"David was a great ambassador and nobody can deny that he has raised the profile of the game in the U.S., but now guys like me will try to build upon that. It's impressive that MLS already attracts more spectators per game [over 19,000] than the Brazilian Championship [around 17,000]. I feel in great shape and have been injury free for a while. Of course I am not the same guy as I was in 2007, but I have learned to shape my game to this stage of my career,” said Kaka.
