Football fans split between Kaka and Ozil

On Twitter, Kaka has been trending for hours and so is Ozil. Both players became the center of attraction after some football fans made comparison between both players.

The argument really is that one player is better than the other. Many Twitter users have however argued in favour of Kaka.

“Kaka ruled football during his time” many said while others believe Ozil still has the potential to be a great player.

But here are the stats of both players and you can make up your mind on who is better.


Born Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite in Gama, Brazil, he began his career with São Paulo at the age of eight.

He made his senior side debut on 1 February 2001 and went on to score 23 goals in 59 appearances. He joined AC Milan from São Paulo in 2003.

Between 2003 and 2009 he played 193 times for the Italian club scoring 70 times.

He joined Real Madrid in 2009 and managed only 23 goals in 85 appearances. In 2013, he returned to Milan playing 30 times and scoring seven goals.

He departed Milan to Orlando City in 2014. He played 28 times scoring nine goals.

He is presently on loan at São Paulo where he has played 19 times scoring twice.
