Kaka returns like a phoenix from the ashes

Kaka returns like a phoenix from the ashes

 Ricardo kaka is the first name that comes to your mind when you think of  football in the years 2003-2008. Those were the most productive years of his career.San siro's favourite son gave everything he had, to his team.
The world of football recognized  his talent by giving him the world footballer award for the year 2007.He was considered as  the most wanted footballer by the club power houses of Europe.

However the last 4 years have been hard for the Brazilian.He was reduced to being a substitute in the Real Madrid team as he had failed to gain his boss's confidence.Many wondered what the aging midfielder could bring to the team.Media quoted this bad patch in his career as a 'fall from grace'.But his return to AC Milan changed his story. (It already looks like an excellent transfer!).

Even though he missed some matches because of injury, he came back strongly as the 75th minute replacement for his team mate Birsa against Udinese.He did more than Birsa had done in the past 75 minutes.The match put the smile back on his face and he regained an important role in the team..He started showing his old magic in the field.

After scoring against Lazio with an amazing curving shot to the right corner of the post,Kaka has scored six goals and produced five assists in all competitions for Milan.His best performances have been against the best teams in the world like Barcelona,Atletico Madrid & Roma .His recent performances have proved that he can still play  football at its best. He has silenced his critics by displaying immense talent and skill on the field.In his second spell at AC Milan he is enjoying football as he did 5 years ago.He completed his 100th goal for AC Milan in January 2014 in front of his home crowd.His experience will definitely boost Brazil's chances of  winning the 2014 world cup,if selected.His recent performances suggest that the Brazilian coach should give him a chance in the coming world cup.AC Milan may not be at the safe position in the current  league table,but kaka has been one of the most consistent performers of the team in the season so far.
