A Craque Piece on Kaka

Antonio Maria Filho is a Brazilian sports writer and author of the weekly column Panorama Esportivo in Brazil's O Globo newspaper, who wrote a great (craque) piece for the Guardian on his pick for best player in the world.

Filho says:

"If Manchester City have the money to hire the best player in the world, congratulations to them. They will not regret the investment. It matters little if Kaka came in behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Fernando Torres at Fifa's Gala contest this month. This does not mean he is a worse player. It is one thing to have a great season; it is quite another to be a genuine superstar."

"Kaka is the best player on planet earth and wasn't credited as such in Zurich only because 2008 held some disappointments for him – physical problems that put him on the surgeon's table, preventing him from showing his art at Milan or even in the Brazil side. Had it not been for these problems, he had everything to have finished in first place like the year before."
