[Kaka on Steven Gerrard] An excellent player, in my opinion, he is a modern player because he is a player who runs, marks, knows how to pass, cross, score goals and he is a leader on the field for Liverpool. So he is a player that I would like to have in my team

[When Kaka was questioned by British football magazine Four-Four-Two recently as to who he thought was the best player in the world] That’s a difficult question. If I had to choose three, I would pick Cristiano Ronaldo, because of his skill and speed; Messi, because of his flair and skills; and Steven Gerrard, who for me is the complete modern player

[Kaka wants AC Milan to sign Steven Gerrard, despite the England midfielder recently agreeing a new contract with Liverpool. The Brazilian said] The time has arrived to re-energise a group which has many players at the end of their contracts. Gerrard is a complete player and can play anywhere.

[Kaka on Steven Gerrard] Gerrard will fit in with any club in the world. He’s one of the players in the world that have all what it takes to play for Real Madrid. I want to urge Gerrard to join Real Madrid. If you don’t play for Real Madrid you always feel that something is missing. There is nothing better than wearing Real Madrid’s jersey. This is a big opportunity for Gerrard. I’m not talking money wise, but victories wise. I’m sure that Gerrard has alot of respect towards Mourinho. Steven signing for Real Madrid will be perfect for him

[Kaka, who, as well as the Ronaldos, has played alongside the likes of Paolo Maldini, Neymar, Andrea Pirlo, Raul, Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldinho, Manuel Rui Costa and Andriy Shevchenko] The best player I have ever played with? That’s Ronaldo, O Fenômeno. The other Ronaldo – Cristiano – probably makes my top five, but I have seen O Fenômeno do things that nobody else has ever done

[Kaka delivers an inspirational dressing-room speech ahead of Orlando City’s professional debut] One thing I’ve learned in football is that good players can win one game, five games, ten games, but just a good team can win the championship. Today we’re going to fight together, we’re going to attack together, we’re going to defend together. We have to be a group, not singles players. Everybody together, let’s win this game!

[Kaka expresses his surprise at the coaching success that Zinedine Zidane has had so far with the Spanish giants] When I was there [at Real Madrid], I had [Zinedine Zidane] as a second coach for Jose Mourinho, and he started doing very well, but I think it’s a big surprise for everybody. He was an amazing player, and he’s smart, he’s intelligent, but the results he’s been having this season are incredible. He can win the league and he can win the [UEFA] Champions League, so they are very, very good results for just two years as a professional coach. So congratulations to Zidane

I want to see them winning and being in the place they deserve to be – at the top

[Kaka offers his theory on how Cristiano Ronaldo stays on top of his game] It doesn’t surprise me for what it is, it surprises me because he’s still at this level. I believe there is also a Messi effect, the infinite challenge, this desire to always outdo himself. At 34 and after so many successes, Cristiano still finds surprising motivations

[AC Milan legend Kaka says the relationship he shared with the club’s fans was totally ‘authentic’ during his two spells at the club] What made it so great is how authentic it was. I hadn’t planned it thinking ‘I want to do this to make the fans like me’, it was very natural. My chant: ‘We came all this way, we came all this way, to see Kaka score’. Every time I hear that song, when I return to San Siro and they sing it, when I watch a video online and they’re singing it, it still gives me goosebumps because of all the emotions tied to it
