Brazil’s all-time winningest footballer Ricardo Kaka participated in the Berlin Marathon. Prepared for the marathon with brother Rodrigo for three years. He gave an interview to Spanish media Marca before the marathon. In the interview, Kaka said, Argentina and Brazil are more likely to become champions in this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
The journalist’s first question was why the uncle took part in the marathon. In response, 2002 World Cup winner Kaka said, ‘I loved coaching. Even after leaving professional football, I am still with him. But none of my goals last long. Brazilians were talking about it. So I decided to run.’
Although his time at Real Madrid did not go well, Kaka enjoyed playing under then coach Carlo Ancelotti. “It’s great,” he said. I admire not only the players in the team but also the work of Carlo Ancelotti as a coach. His work is truly commendable.’
In addition, Kaka said that Benzema is the favorite for this year’s Ballon d’Or. Former AC Milan player Kaka said, ‘I think he (Benzema) is the clear favorite. But you can never tell with 100 percent. Karim is now a complete player and deserves the Ballon d’Or.’
