Kaka Named Captain of New MLS Franchise Orlando City

Brazilian legend Kaka will ply his trade in Major League Soccer this season with new franchise Orlando City. 

The man who's starred and captained AC Milan and laced up for Real Madrid will fittingly lead the new club's inaugural MLS season wearing the captain's armband, the team has announced. 

Manager Adrian Heath explained the decision to have the seasoned pro lead the side, per Copa America's official website:

Kaka has demonstrated great leadership both on the filed and in the locker room since the start, and the other players have naturally looked to his guidance throughout pre-season, so he was the natural pick to skipper the club. 

Ricky's role will extend off the pitch as well, serving as the team's liaison with the front office and coaching staff on all player-related concerns to ensure we provide the best possible environment for the players to train, develop and succeed personally and professionally.
