Kaka: Zidane Version 2.0

After watching AC Milan absolutely destroy Manchester United today I have come to the conclusion that we are in the era of Kaka. The Brazilian playmaker perplexed and confused the depleted United backline. Nemanja Vidic came into the game with a bit of a knock and Kaka decided to make a fool out of him. The first goal of the game was everything that Kaka brings to the table; a laser shot, movement around the backline like a striker, and vision to see runs before they happen.

Coming into the game I was buying the lobbying of the English press that Cristiano Ronaldo was the best player in world. He has streamlined his game and used his incredible ball skills to become the best player in the Premiership. The way that Ronaldo has lifted a United team that doesn't appear on paper to have the talent is nothing short of amazing. Ronaldo has had a hell of a year and deserves consideration for European Footballer of the Year and for FIFA World Player of the Year.

Kaka, on the other hand, is quickly approaching that next stratosphere of reputation. He has been the best player in the Serie A this season giving Milan a bite and imagination in attack. His Champions League form has been other worldly scoring 10 goals from the midfield. Without Kaka, AC Milan couldn't possibly be in the position they are now. In two weeks, Milan gets to avenge the most embarassing loss in club history against Liverpool. As a Chelsea fan I have every ounce of support thrown behind AC Milan. Kaka is going to get his chance to shine in the biggest stage in European club football. Can he pull off a Zidane-style moment in front of the world? Yes he can and I think he will.
