  • The European trophy was one of a host of silverware won by the Brazilian during his career

The blog is a little saddened that the handsome game loses one if it's finest players of our era today, as Kaka has announced his retirement from football aged 35.

Kaka was offered a new deal to stay at MLS side Orlando City for 2018 and the club's chief executive, Alex Leitao, has previously suggested the Brazilian would be welcomed back at the club in a different role.

"My career as a professional player is over". Kaka played for Brazil, AC Milan and Real Madrid during his career. Kaka was the best paid of the entire competition with a salary of $7.2 million.

Kaka announced this year he would not extend his contract with Orlando City but he opened the door to a possible return to Milan, the club where he made his name.

He confirmed his retirement on his official Twitter account, saying: "Father, It was much more than I could ever imagined".

"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. Kaka retires having won a Ballon D'or, Champions League, and World Cup among other accolades.

He was arguably at his prime during the six years he spent with the Italian giants between 2003 and 2009, during which time he also won the Serie A title in 2004 and the Club World Cup in 2007.

Following his €67 million transfer to Real Madrid, however, he entered a somewhat patchier stage in his career but now, with all said and done, he has most certainly done enough to warrant his legendary status.

Kaka tweeted Sunday that "I'm now ready for the next journey".
