Former Brazil Midfielder Kaka Retires from Football

After tasting defeat to Liverpool in the 2005 Champions League final Kaka got his revenge

He also indicated he could continue his post-playing career in football. I wanted to thank you so much for your football, for our 17 years of friendship and for joining me in Orlando.

Kaka will be remembered as being one of the elite Brazilian players that wowed the crowds and his list of silverware - both team and indvidual (including the Ballon d'Or) will strengthen that argument. "In Jesus name. Amen", he tweeted.

Kaka made his intentions public after confirming the failure of his team, Orlando City, in the regular season of Major League Soccer (MLS), which remained for the third consecutive year outside the play-offs despite having the Brazilian player in its ranks.

"I needed some time to think and make a very quiet decision, very calm and very conscious of what I would like for my professional life", he said.

"The fact that I have had success as a professional player does not mean that I will be a good director, so I want to prepare for it from now on; study, monitor, be closer to some clubs, especially one where I played".

"I would like to participate in the club in another way, as a manager, a sporting director, as someone who is between the pitch and the club", he said in a farewell interview with Globo TV in Brazil. I went to Europe to watch some games, to feel the emotion of the game there, where football really has its highest point.

"These are things that I will start to prepare myself for".

Kaka joined Orlando City from Milan in 2014 and spent three seasons with the club before departing earlier this year.
