As he prepares to play his final game for AC Milan, Paolo Maldini has called for Kaka to inherit the club captaincy.

“I am feeling some strong emotions at the moment,” Maldini told the Milan Channel.

“I see this final game as a celebration of the past 25 years and I will have my friends and family around me.

“I hope I have the strength to play well and win as that would be the best way to celebrate with the people who wish me well.

“There is a time when a player must take on more responsibility and I feel that my departure has brought about that time for Kaka. I think he will be here for a long.

“He has aspired to being captain and I think he has the right personality to do it.”
