AC Milan are currently enduring a difficult period in their history, but club icon, Kaka believes they’ll return to the summit of world football.
The Brazil icon won the Ballon d’Or in his first stint at the club. And helped them to the UCL, Serie A, Club World Cup and uefa super cup, between 2003 and 2009.
However, Milan have declined badly since winning the Scudetto in 2011, having gone from runners-up in 2012, to third, eighth, 10th and seventh last season.
It is a situation that hurts Kaka but the 34-year-old – now captain of MLS outfit Orlando City – has backed Milan to work their way back into contention under Vincenzo Montella.
“I had very good moments there, I saw Milan at the top of the world, and to see the team like this now, it’s sad,” Kaka told Omnisport.
“They’re still a big club with a great history. Of course the history doesn’t go on the field but when you have history like this, it is just a period, so they can come back and be the best in the world.
“I think in a few years we will see Milan fighting for the Champions League again and winning Serie A. I’m sure Milan can do this again.”
