Former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder announce his retirement

Major Soccer League side Orlando City midfielder Kaká, a former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder, has announced that he is retiring from football. Earlier this year, the 35-year-old Brazilian had announced that he would not extend his contract with Orlando City but opened the door to a possible return to Milan, the club where he made his name. Milan and his first team, São Paulo, both offered him a playing contract to extend his career but Kaká, who was in Brazil’s World Cup-winning squad in 2002, said the time was right to call it a day. The Brazilian joined Milan in 2003 and stayed for six years before joining Real Madrid. After winning one Spanish league title and one Copa del Rey in Spain, he returned to Milan in 2013 before joining the new Major League Soccer side Orlando City of America.
