Ronaldo, Pelé: Kaka’s apologies

Kaka made an act of contrition on Thursday. And rather twice than once. In a message posted on social networks, the 2002 world champion indeed apologized for his recent comments on Ronaldo and his absence at Pelé’s funeral.

« It’s strange to say that, but a lot of Brazilians don’t invade Brazil. It happens sometimes. If you see Ronaldo walking around in Qatar you say ‘wow’, there is something different about him here. In Brazil, it’s just a fat man walking down the street, he had dropped about his former teammate in Seleçao. Of course, many Brazilians love Ronaldo. I love Ronaldo, but the way he is respected in Brazil and abroad is different, I see more respect for him outside the country than there. »

The former Milanese therefore corrected the situation. “During the World Cup, one of my statements was made in a certain context, but unfortunately it spread as a criticism of all the people. It was never my intention, he explained. couldn’t be the case either, mainly because the Brazilian people have always treated me with a lot of love. I was only talking about the people who, at that time, were supporting a national team idol. made a mistake in the inelegant way to quote a friend, but I already apologized, we moved on.”

Kaka also returned to his absence at the funeral of Pelé, who died last Thursday. “This declaration was again recalled on the occasion of the death and awakening of our dear King Pelé, a person for whom I have immense admiration and for whom I have received from his hands the greatest individual award of my career, he continued. That night, he said only he could make this moment even better. As a Brazilian and a (Site notre bureau spécialisé) fan, my respect and admiration will remain and I’m really sorry that I didn’t go to Santos. I had the opportunity to honor the king in life a few times, among requested a fair chat between us, kindly arranged by his son. It was another special moment, among others, that I will keep in my heart. »
