    • Kaka: I want to grow old at Milan. My aim is to become at some point in the future the captain of this team. I know there is a hierarchy and Maldini and Ambrosini are before me, but after...

    • Kakà: I hope to continue to be a positive symbol, especially for the kids.

    • Kakà: It is an honour to now be both an Italian and a Brazilian.

    • Kakà (during the press conference following the 2007 Golden Ball award) : I want to show my gratitutde to a country like Italy, which gave me the possibility to play. Even my team belongs to the Italian league, one of the three most followed leagues in the world. Both Italy and Milan allowed me to be here today and for this reason I'm grateful.

    • Kakà: It's a great emotion, I thank everyone. It's a special day for me and all the Rossoneri fans. A really important day. This Golden Ball is the most sought after award by the footballers. It's an individual award and for me it's a dream which is becoming reality. Today I feel this recognition really mine and I believe that every player has his own characters in his game. Maybe I was more decisive than Ronaldo and Messi. I met the former one with Milan and we won, whereas for Messi, I think that he still needs to win an important competition like the league or the Champions League and for this reason he was penalized.

    • Kaka: The World Cup was a huge frustration because I had prepared really hard for it. But in the World Cup there is no formula, no recipe for success.
