Who has the phrase “God is Faithful” stitched on the tongues of his boots? It's none other than Kaka.
He used to be the centre of attention a few years ago, but today Kaka is a forgotten man due to his recent poor form.
As a fan of this Brazilian footballer, I always question myself if he will ever regain his form. What will happen to his career?
I can still recall the first time I saw Kaka playing. That was 11 years ago when he represented Brazil for the first round match against Costa Rica in the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
I grew up watching him on TV and reading stories about his tactical moves especially when he was with Milan. He had the powerful skills that a football star should have. To be frank, he is the first good looking footballer I liked.
He was not able to perform at his best in the star-studded Real Madrid, compared to his six seasons at Milan. As a fan this made me so tense that I thought I would explode.
Do you know what it feels like when your favourite footballer has so many difficulties that he becomes petulant?
It made me so frustrated.
And, petulance does not suit Kaka; he's normally very calm.
Worse still, his club problems affected his performance with Brazil.
As a fan, I still supported Kaka, but I was really concerned about his crisis. After all, it is not just me who is affected, but all his fans around the world.
“Fans lost hope, but I haven’t lost it,” said Kaka.
When I heard this, I changed the way I saw things.
Trying to look at the bright side, I decided to be less worried and became more optimistic about his career. To see Kaka full of desire to start over and really determined to shine again, I told myself to not give up on him.
He finally returned to Milan a few weeks ago and I felt so happy.
Now, he is back where he belongs. Whether Kaka is struggling to shine again for his name or to win his fans' hearts at Milan, his presence is certainly valuable to the club. He is back on track. That is more like it. It may seem blurry at the moment, but do not lose hope. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.
P.S: If his footballing career comes to an abrupt end, Kaka can always produce songs as he has a musical side. A soccer superstar, maybe?
