Kaká is one of the most iconic players of the generation before Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, because although he was contemporary to them, he was already an idol and an established player when the Argentine and the Portuguese began to take over world soccer. In fact, Kaká was the last player to win a Ballon d'Or before Messi and Ronaldo alternated the next ten years of the award.

The Brazilian won the Ballon d'Or in 2007, when he was playing for AC Milan and established himself as the best in the world. Undoubtedly, he is an authoritative voice to talk about this sport, since in addition to being one of the best of his time, he was also a teammate of great legends, including Cristiano Ronaldo, with whom he shared a dressing room at Real Madrid.

Now, Kaká has generated a lot of controversy on social networks, as he revealed what for him is the ideal XI of all time and highlighted the absence of Lionel Messi, whom he seems to have completely forgotten. The former Brazilian soccer player, world champion in 2002, shared his historic lineup as follows.

Dida, the Brazilian goalkeeper and former goalkeeping partner of Kaká. He chose Roberto Carlos on the left and Cafú on the right, both Brazilians. Kaká chose Paolo Maldini and Alessandro Nesta, his former AC Milan teammates, as center backs. In midfield, he chose Iniesta, Zidane and Andrea Pirlo, while in attack he opted for Ronaldinho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldo Nazario.

And Messi?

It seems that Kaká "forgot" Lionel Messi when it came to putting together that historic line-up. In the XI chosen by the Brazilian, there are nine Ballons d'Or (five for Cristiano Ronaldo, two for Ronaldo and one each for Zidane and Ronaldinho), one less than Messi alone, as well as nine world champions. It also highlights that there is no Argentinian in Kaká's lineup.
