Kaka’s final game for Orlando City ended in disappointment as the MLS club lost 1-0 to Columbus Crew in an emotional encounter on Sunday evening.
The former AC Milan midfielder was moved to tears during the American national anthem as he lined up alongside his team-mates for the final time.
The 35-year-old one-time Ballon D’Or winner later thanked Orlando City fans for all their support during his three-year stay at the club.
“Today was a special day for me because the whole day kept reminding me of these past three years, everything that happened, in this city, with this club, everything. Today is just about [saying] thank you,” Kaka said in an address to his home fans.
