Pele Concurs With Sir Alex

Agreeing with the boss at Manchester United, the original samba king backs his compatriot, Kaka, to carry Milan to Champions League glory next Wednesday. Pele thinks that between the Kaka and Clarence Seedorf, the Rossoneri will be tough to beat. He had this to say about the two Milan players:
The Dutchman gives a quiet balance, hides the ball from opponents and provides assists. Together those two equal a Champions League winning combination. [Kaka] is the best player in the world along with Ronaldinho. I hope he can bring the Champions League to Milan. He above all reminds me of Johann Cruyff with that progression, pace, eye for goal and when he starts from midfield he's unique. Kaka has improved so much – more than I thought possible – even if you could tell from a young age he would go far. When he is on form, Milan are devastating.
