After a glittering spell with AC Milan as a player, Kaka returned to the San Siro on Friday night and received a brilliant reception from the fans.
The Brazilian ace played for the Rossoneri between 2003 and 2009, making 270 appearances for the club while scoring 95 goals and winning a Serie A title, the Champions League and a FIFA Club World Cup during his spell in Italy.
Evidently, the impact he made is still appreciated to this day, as seen in the video below he posted on Twitter as his name was read out at the San Siro ahead of Milan’s win over Roma on Friday night.
It will undoubtedly have been an emotional occasion for Kaka to see that he’s still loved by the club’s supporters even after initially leaving over nine years ago before returning in the 2013/14 campaign where he bagged nine goals in 37 outings.
As noted by Calciomercato, Kaka may not just be visiting Milan, as it’s been suggested in Italy that he could be preparing for a role at his former club with ex-teammates Leonardo and Paolo Maldini both now returning too in the new-look hierarchy since the takeover by Elliott Management.
Based on the reception he got from the fans, it seems as though he may well be a very popular addition at Casa Milan in the future.
