Kaká's pace, creative passing, goal scoring and dribbles from midfield saw him win the FIFA World Player of the Year, the Ballon d'Or, the UEFA Club Footballer of the Year and the IFFHS World's Best Playmaker awards.
After his success with Milan, Kaká joined Real Madrid for a transfer fee of €67 million.
In 2015, he scored on his MLS debut for Orlando City; he was later included in the roster for the 2015 MLS All-Star Game, where he was named Most Valuable Player.
Kaká made his debut for the Brazil national team in 2002, and was selected for their victorious World Cup squad that year, as well as the 20 tournaments, leading the tournament in assists in the latter.
Kaká made his professional club debut at age 18 at São Paulo FC in Brazil in 2001. At Milan, the club where he spent his prime years, Kaká won a Serie A title and was named the Serie A Footballer of the Year twice.
After being named to the Bola de Ouro as the best player in the 2002 Campeonato Brasileiro, in 2003 he joined Italian club A. In 2005, Milan finished runners up in the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final to Liverpool F.
During the interview she told Simpson how she had started modelling during her last year of high school and had been immediately told to lose 10 kilograms.
Despite her obviously frail physique she said she had never once been told by a modelling agency to put on weight.
At the end of the 2013–14 season, he joined MLS expansion club Orlando City, but initially returned to his former Brazilian club São Paulo FC on loan.At the time of the campaign she weighed just 29 kilograms and had fallen into a coma the previous year.Last year she was interviewed by the American pop star Jessica Simpson and said her weight had risen to 39 kilograms, but she still looked painfully thin.But Caro had always rebuffed such criticism, saying she believed most young girls would be repulsed and not encouraged by the poster campaign."My anorexia causes death," she explained in an interview three years ago.His younger brother Rodrigo (best known as Digão) and cousin Eduardo Delani are also professional footballers.Digão called him "Caca" due to his inability to pronounce "Ricardo" when they were young; it eventually evolved into Kaká.At the time, this was the second highest transfer fee (in euros) ever, behind only the €77.5 million (150 billion lire) fee for Zinedine Zidane.However, in the same transfer window Real Madrid broke the world record by signing Cristiano Ronaldo.The exact cause of death is not known but she was treated in hospital for a fortnight with an acute respiratory disease after returning from Japan. Referring to Caro's anorexia, Daniele Dubreuil-Prevot, her long-time acting instructor, said the French model "had been sick for a long time".Vincent Bigler, a Swiss singer who became a close friend of Caro, told The Independent that Caro had been determined to help women like her who suffered from eating disorders.
