Is Kaka a legend

Milan legend Kaka on Lucas Paqueta: "Has a great future ahead of him"

Former Brazilian midfielder Kaka said that Lucas Paqueta from Flamengo Rio de Janeiro was very talented, but avoided comparisons with legends from Serie A club AC Milan.

"He's a player who has a great future ahead of him. He's already been nominated for the Selecao, but it's better for him not to make comparisons," the 36-year-old said in an interview with Milan TV.

Kaka on Paqueta: "Should be allowed to play in peace"

The 21-year-old has agreed on a transfer with the Rossoneri, which reminds Kaka of his own time in Milan. "I've seen a lot of players like that. Myself, Alexandre Pato, Ronaldinho, Cafu, Rivaldo, all those who are part of the club's history," said the ex-international.

Now the former midfielder wishes that Paqueta can concentrate on football in peace. "He should be able to come here and play in peace, then I'm confident," said Kaka, hoping that the offensive player will develop positively.

In the past few days, rumors have surfaced that Kaka might become a sporting director at Milan. "I have spoken a lot with Leonardo to understand how to act as a director. Now I am doing a sports management course in Brazil," said Kaka of the speculation. "I hope one day I can work for Milan as sporting director, but nothing is certain at the moment," said Kaka of the current state of affairs.
