Former Real Madrid and Brazil midfielder Kaka was at Man Utd vs Arsenal on Sunday and was also at Carrington on Monday. Former Ballon d'Or winner Kaka was at Manchester United's Carrington training ground on Monday, a day after he'd taken in the 3-1 win against Arsenal from the Stretford End. The Brazilian great was at the game against the Gunners with his former international teammate and Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar. The pair were also together at Carrington on Monday, where are taking part in courses as part of UEFA's Masters for International Players qualification.

They were accompanied by Stephane Ehrhart, UEFA's career transitions expert and an instructor on the course, which is designed to give former international players the professional skills to move into a second career within football once their playing days are over. Kaka, who won 92 caps for Brazil and played for Real Madrid and AC Milan, and Cesar were in the tunnel after United's 3-1 win against Arsenal on Sunday.

Kaka played with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid and posed for a photograph in the tunnel with his former teammate. He also caught up with his fellow Brazilians, speaking to Antony, Fred and Casemiro from the United side, as well as Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Jesus and Marquinhos of Arsenal. UEFA's MIP course involves seven week-long sessions held in major European cities as well as one final session held outside of Europe.
Each session examines a different aspect of the administration and governance of a football organisation and candidates not already working with a sports body can be requested to fulfil a three-month work placement role. Kaka had a brilliant career as a football player and he's looking to have an even better one as a manager.
