Kaka snubs Lionel Messi from his Dream XI despite choosing him over Cristiano Ronaldo once

Kaka, the player who won the Ballon d’Or the season before the rivalry started between Lionel Messi and CR7 for the next decade, has been in the media recently. The Brazilian has been vocal about his preferences and likes about certain players. His opinions are always considered by fans and pundits, considering what a remarkable player he was.

Recently, when the Real Madrid legend revealed his Dream XI, the team looked good with the likes of Maldini, Zidane, Iniesta, Ronaldo, and Ronaldinho. Still, the exclusion of a certain someone, despite being preferred openly by the Brazilians in the past, has agitated fans around the world.

In a recent report by AS Diario, the Brazilian midfielder Kaka revealed his dream lineup, consisting of world-class players whom the player has admired during his career, although his choice this time around has contradicted his previous statements.

Kaka chose Italian giants Maldini and Nesta to form the base of the defence and preferred Cafu and Roberto Carlos to complete the defensive line, providing solid defensive cover as well as important attacking output.

His choice of midfielders were Zinedine Zidane, Andrea Pirlo, and Andres Iniesta, three of the best midfield players to ever play the beautiful game. In the attack, the player went with Brazilian Ronaldo since the player was just a beast in front of the goal and used to smell goals and create them out of nowhere. On the left wing, the universal choice of Ronaldinho was made by the Brazilian, which was a must considering the talent and composure he had with the ball on his feet.

But the conspiracy arrived when the Brazilian opted to prefer CR7 over Lionel Messi for the right-wing position. Any football mastermind would assume that after the career Messi has had, anyone would just choose him as the right winger at the very top of the team. But Kaka thought otherwise.

The selection seems weird since CR7 never really played on the right wing. The Al-Nassr star who is currently recovering from an injury, has always played as a centre-forward or a left-winger during his career. Another contradiction that arose in the lineup was that previously the Brazilian player had preferred Messi over CR7, which just made the case much more interesting.

The Brazilian has recently revealed his dream lineup and has picked CR7 over Lionel Messi, that too in the right-wing position. Lionel Messi, who is considered at least the best right winger in the world, has just won the World Cup for his country, although his current form along with his teams has not been good recently.

Kaka was recently asked to form the perfect footballer during the Club World Cup and the Brazilian did so brilliantly. The player took the left foot of Marcelo, the right foot of Neymar, the speed of Kylian Mbappe, who might be on his way to Real Madrid, the strength of Haaland, the skill set of Lionel Messi, and the football IQ of Kevin de Bryune. The Brazilians didn’t even mention CR7 in these conversations.

All of these controversies and contradictions seem interesting and fan-like since the rivalry between the two greats has always been admired by many fans and pundits around the world. The rivalry, it seems, is never going to stop and any player expressing their opinions would be under scrutiny for choosing one and neglecting the other.

The situation surrounding Kaka preferences seems interesting and it would be right to keep an eye out for any more shocking revelations. What do you guys think? Should CR7 be chosen or should Lionel Messi have been given his rightful place in the lineup? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
