The Brazilian, who now plays for MLS side Orlando City, was part of the Milan team that established a 3-0 lead in Istanbul only for Liverpool to stage a sensational comeback which culminated in Rafa Benitez’s side prevailing on penalty kicks.

And 11 years on from the ignominious defeat, the 33-year-old has revealed that he still can’t get his head around the events that unfolded on the night.It is your chance to buy some Fifa 17 coins from online sites Fifa 17 coins.

“Honestly, years later I still can’t understand how we managed to lose that game. We had the best defenders in the world in that team,” Kaka told Radio Cope.

“Our back four was Cafu, Jaap Stam, Alessandro Nesta and Paolo Maldini but we still let in three goals in six minutes. Something amazing happened that can’t be explained.

“All you can really say is that in football these things can happen. Especially in the Champions League, we have seen truly incredible things happen.”

Kaka’s Milan did eventually exact a measure of revenge over Liverpool two years later, however, as they overcame the Reds in Athens to win the 2007 Champions League final.

The creative midfielder started his career at Sao Paolo before moving to Milan and, after a spell with Real Madrid he returned to Italy before moving on to the MLS, also enjoying a loan spell back at Sao Paolo in 2014.

Now approaching his mid-thirties, Kaka is in the latter stages of his career and is yet to feature for Orlando City in the MLS this season, although last term Kaka did demonstrate that he is still a fine distributor of the ball as he was successful with 83% of his passes in the league.

Kaka was also one of his side’s best players in a creative sense as he laid on 54 opportunities for his team-mates, far more than any of his team-mates mustered.

Kaka won 44% of his duels in MLS last season.
