I’m the last Ballon d’Or winner ‘born on this planet

The former AC Milan and Real Madrid midfielder admits he’s in awe of the achievements of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi

Kaka has praised Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo by joking he was the last Ballon d’Or winner to be “born on this planet”.

The Brazil international won the prize in 2007during his time with AC
Milan ahead of Ronaldo and Messi – who have shared it in the seven
years since.

Kaka, 33, said it was an honour to win an award as he paid tribute to what his successors have managed to do since.

“Ronaldinho, Cristiano, Messi and myself are the only Ballon d’Or winners who are still playing,” he told Marca.

“It fills me with pride to stand alongside these great players, and
to be the last player to have won the award before Messi and Ronaldo.

“You could say that I was the last Ballon d’Or winner to have been born on this planet.”

Kaka’s Milan career was followed by a less impressive stint at Real
Madrid, where he struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho.

But the attacking midfielder, who is a Champions League, Serie A and
La Liga winner, said his relationship with the coach was fine.

“I always acted very professionally and respected the decisions he made. My relationship with him wasn’t bad,” Kaka said.

“It’s true that there were certain things that I didn’t agree with,
but I had no choice but to keep on working hard, and that’s just what I
did.

“And you know what? For me, it was rewarding to hear what he said
about me when we both left the club. When he was asked about me, he said
that I was a top professional.”
