Kaka believes his former side Milan “will rise again” - if they follow the example of Juventus.
The Brazilian midfielder was interviewed at today’s Ballon d’Or ceremony, and is the last player outside of Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo to win the prize.
“It’s hard to say from afar what’s wrong with Milan,” Kaka admitted, speaking to Sky.
“The Rossoneri are going through a negative cycle, but I’m sure they will rise again.
“Juventus have to be the example, for the way they came from Serie B to the Champions League final. I know it’s hard to follow the example of another team in the same country, but that’s what you have to do sometimes.”
Kaka was then asked who he believes will win the Ballon d’Or, with Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar the nominees.
“Messi is the big favourite, he won everything and was a protagonist. He’s the favourite, but all three deserve to be here.”
