Rui Costa: Split Ballon d'Or between Kaka, Man Utd's Ronaldo

Benfica veteran Rui Costa believes this year's Ballon d'Or should be split between Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka.

AC Milan midfield ace Kaka is regarded by many as being favourite for the Player of the Year award and while former Rossoneri star Rui Costa would love to see the Brazilian pick up the trophy, he also wants recognition for fellow Portuguese Ronaldo, the Manchester United winger.

"This year I would split in two the Ballon d'Or and give half to Cristiano Ronaldo and half to Kaka," said Rui Costa.
