On his personal page, Kaka re-posted pictures of famous players and former players with all three noble titles. Lionel Messi is the latest name on this list. “Welcome to the legendary club,” said the former Brazil international.
In the history of football, there are only 9 players who own the trio of noble titles (World Cup, Champions League and Golden Ball), which are Messi, Kaka, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Paolo Rossi, Gerd Muller, Franz Beckenbauer and Bobby Charlton.
In this list, Messi is the most prominent name. Before reaching the top of the world with Argentina at the 2022 World Cup, Messi had 4 times conquered the Champions League with Barcelona, accompanied by 7 Golden Balls – an achievement no player in history can touch. The sublime performance in recent times brought Messi back to the race to win the 2023 Golden Ball of France Football.
On Kaka’s side, he was a member of the Brazil team that won the 2022 World Cup. In the Milan shirt, the once talented midfielder reached the peak of his career by winning the Champions League and the Golden Ball title, the same in 2007.
In the press conference not long ago, Kaka also gave compliments to Messi. “Angel” uses the word “privilege” to talk about watching the performance of the Argentina captain at the 2022 World Cup.
“Messi is in very, very good form at the World Cup. He can win the championship and be the main character of this year’s tournament. As a football fan, I’m happy to be here. enjoy the performance of both Messi and Ronaldo,” emphasized the 2002 World Cup champion.
Kaka’s prediction came true. Messi won the first World Cup in his career and was named the Best Player of the World Cup (2014 and 2022) for the second time.
