VIDEO: Kaka – 35 Now, Forever 22
A true magician on the field and a true humble human being who has turned 35 on 22 April. Can you believe that?
It was back in 2003 when a young Brazilian boy came to Milan, willing to watch the masters of that time, someone like Rui Costa, Shevchenko, Seedorf, Pirlo, Rivaldo.. and learn. Little did he know all of his dreams would come true in the coming years, the Scudetto, the Supercoppa Italiana, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, the Club World Cup.
He is often referred as the “the last Ballon d’Or winner born on this planet”. After having a rough patch at Real Madrid, Kaka came back for one last season. In 2014, he left as a gentleman and an experienced veteran, the perfect role model.
“Happy birthday, Golden Boy. You are 35 now, but you will always be our 22.”
To honor him, here are the total 104 goals he scored wearing the Milan jersey and the chance to see the magic he did with his feet again. Enjoy!
