Kaka: Brazilian Ronaldo was better than Cristiano

AC Milan star Kaka has declared who he believes to be the best player he has ever played alongside during an interview on Mediaset.

AC Milan ace Kaka has told an interviewer on Mediaset programme Tiki Taka that he believes Brazilian striker Ronaldo is the best player he has ever played with.

After a tough spell at Real Madrid, Kaka is enjoying a renaissance at Milan and netted the first goal of his return against Lazio.

Despite Kaka's form, Milan are struggling and the pressure is mounting on coach Massimiliano Allegri, who has some tough questions to answer.

But Kaka was sent on a trip down memory lane by the interviewer on Mediaset's Tiki Taka, who asked the 31-year-old to choose the most talented teammate of his career so far.

"It has to be Ronaldo," Kaka insisted. "The Phenomenon, that is. I would put the other Ronaldo, Cristiano, in my top five but I've seen Ronaldo do things that no-one else has."

Kaka was also asked who has been the best coach to work with and, as expected, he didn't choose Allegri.

"I had the best years of my career with Carlo Ancelotti but I have learned something from everyone," he said.

As for the best goal of his career, Kaka had no doubt, selecting his masterpiece against Manchester United in the 2006-07 Champions League.

"My best goal is still the one against Manchester United at Old Trafford," he responded. "You don't think about the risk involved in putting your head between two defenders when you're playing."

Asked what the worst moment of his career so far has been, Kaka recalled a low point in 2010.

"The knee injury at the 2010 World Cup," he explained. "I was out for six months after that and you can't imagine how you will ever come back. You are hit by doubts and it's very difficult."
