AC Milan hero Kaka announces his retirement

AC Milan hero Kaka has announced his playing retirement.

Kaka, 35, has decided to hang up his boots after winding up his career at Orlando City.

"My cycle as a professional player ends here," Kaka confirmed.

“I needed a bit of time to think and make my decision with calm. I spoke to some people very close to me – my parents, my brother, my girlfriend and my brother's wife – five people. It was a time for prayer.

“In a very conscious manner, I came to the conclusion that the time has come to end my career as a professional player."
