Kaka places 6th for the 2009 Ballon d'Or

Top ten results:
1. Lionel Messi (Barca), 473 points.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real), 233.
3. Xavi (Barcelona), 170.
4. Andres Iniesta (Barcelona), 149.
5. Samuel Eto'o (Inter Milan), 75.
6. Kaka (Real Madrid), 58.
7. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Barca), 50.
8. Wayne Rooney (Man United), 35.
9. Didier Drogba (Chelsea), 33.
10. Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), 32.

In my opinion, it's a decent result, given the season he had last season. It goes to show that even when things do not go so well, the world never fails to notice just how spectacular he is.

Kaka unveiled at the Bernabeu

Kaka was officially presented as a Real Madrid player in front of tens of thousands of fans at the Bernabeu stadium on today.

An estimated 50,000-strong crowd - almost three times the anticipated number - turned up to watch the ceremony as Kaka was unveiled as Madrid's latest addition by club president Florentino Perez and honorary president Alfredo di Stefano.

The 27 year-old former AC Milan playmaker will wear the No 8 at Madrid next season.

"I'm very happy because this new stage of my career will be at Real Madrid. I hope to write my name into the history of this club with many victories and successes." - Kaka
