Kaka, a former Real Madrid and Brazil midfielder, attended Manchester United’s game against Arsenal on Sunday and is currently in Carrington.
Former Ballon d’Or winner Kaka was at Manchester United’s Carrington training complex on Monday, a day after he’d taken in the 3-1 win against Arsenal from the Stretford End.
The Brazilian legend attended the game against Arsenal alongside his old international teammate and Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar. They were also seen together on Monday at Carrington, where they were attending classes as part of UEFA’s Masters for International Players qualification.
They were accompanied by Stephane Ehrhart, UEFA’s career transitions expert and a course instructor. The course is aimed to provide former international players with the professional skills needed to transition into a second career in football when their playing days are done.
Kaka and Cesar were in the tunnel following United’s 3-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday. Kaka has 92 caps for Brazil and has also played for Real Madrid and AC Milan.
Kaka worked with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid and posed for a shot with him in the tunnel. He also spoke with his fellow Brazilians, including Manchester United’s Antony, Fred, and Casemiro, as well as Arsenal’s Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Jesus, and Marquinhos.
The MIP course offered by UEFA consists of seven week-long sessions held in key European cities, as well as one final session held outside of Europe.
Each session tackles a different area of football administration and governance, and candidates who have not previously worked for a sports authority may be asked to do a three-month work placement assignment.
