Kaka’, off to England and World Player of the Year?

I love it whenever a player speaks out hypothetically and the press goes wild. Kaka’ was interview earlier this week by Esquire magazine and was quoted as expressing interest in playing in England or Spain if he were to ever leave Milan… Well shock, horror! If you’re not playing in Italy, what are the other major leagues in Europe? That’s right, in England and Spain.

He merely stated that he’d want a move to a club with the history, ability and stature of Milan. He did elaborate somewhat and went on to say that he prefer’s Arsenal and Manchester United over Liverpool and Chelsea. He was actually quite diplomatic in his manner of basically saying that neither Liverpool or Chelsea are playing the sort of inspiring, attractive football he’d want to be involved in. Can’t blame him!

He was also recently named FIFPro World Player of the Year. Many saw him as not only the inspiration but the main driving force in taking Milan to their seventh European trophy earlier this year. He was the top scorer in the competition (don’t forget he’s a midfielder, not a striker!) and was voted as the best player by footballers from all around the globe (45,000 were eligible to vote!). In fact, Christiano Ronaldo has praised him as the best player of the moment (although he did rate Man U over Milan).

Kaka’ joins three others from Milan to enter the running for the Fifa World Player 2007. An award voted by the coaches and captains of all the national teams. Many are already tipping him to win this award (although I think he would’ve boosted his chances had he player in the Copa America winning selecao side). Kaka’ himself said he is confident that he has a good chance to win but also returned the favour in stating that Christiano Ronaldo may take the award because of his blistering performances that took Manchester United to a domestic title. Either way, sit back for some great Kaka’ footage!
