In this series of posts, we shall look at the most promising young players who will soon capture our imagination and become the biggest stars of the game. As of this writing, Kaká has made it to the provisional team of Brazil. His place on the team is definitely secure. We continue with Kaká. (This is an advance posting.)
Zico explains that Kaká is “Brazil’s finest discovery”. He has the technique of a Brazilian and the physical qualities of a European.
“He’s a well-balanced, laid-back young man, who is not prone to either over-excitement or depression,” explains his coach Carlo Ancelotti with evident admiration. He is mentally very strong and already very mature beyond his years. I don’t think there’s much risk of him getting bigheaded. He is a great champion.
Kaká is definitely a fine talent whose future includes a rivalry between him and Ronaldinho.
Below is a video that brings a comparison between the two players:
