Kaka defends Cristiano Ronaldo's Al-Nassr transfer

Former Real Madrid star Kaka says he understands why Cristiano Ronaldo decided to join Saudi side Al-Nassr.

In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Kaka who played with



Real Madrid

said he understands his decision to play for


and also revealed what Ronaldo, Paolo Maldini, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have in common.

“I think he wants to quit football by playing,”

he said.

“I understand him, he is a special player. Players like him bring to the team a simple concept. Winning is not like losing. I have the feeling that many young players don’t understand this. If they win, it’s great, if not it doesn’t matter. It’s not like this.

“Maldini was a great example of this. He had won four Champions League and he wanted the fifth. Players like him make the difference, Zlatan can still be useful thanks to his mentality.”

Kaka, who won the Ballon d’Or award in 2007, recently got his coaching badges but did not rule out working with former Milan director Adriano Galliani at Monza.

“Why not? Galliani would be an excellent teacher. I spoke to him in Qatar and there is a lot I can learn from him. Italian football is still alive and one always has to deal with Serie A.”

Milan legend also admitted that this is the right moment for Rafael Leao to leave if he has decided not to extend his contract.

“He is a fantastic player, I like him so much,”

Kaka told Gazzetta.

“If he sees Italian football as a transitory moment in his career, then he should leave, now it’s the right moment. I think he should stay because I don’t see Italian football as transitory and sometimes leaving Milan is not a good idea.”
