Kaká: Pato will be world's best

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

Brazilian ace Kaká has tipped AC Milan teammate Alexandre Pato to follow in his footsteps by winning the FIFA World Player of the Year award in future.

Kaká, who won the prize in 2007, is in Zürich alongside the other four nominees for this year's award, where Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo became the second Portuguese to scoop the accolade after Luis Figo in 2001.

And in an interview with FIFA.com, Kaká has heaped high praise on Pato, who hit a crucial double in Milan's 2-2 draw with AS Roma, and expects a glorious future for the youngster.

He said: "There are always new players reaching the top in football and I'm sure Pato will be in my position one day.

"Alexandre is extremely talented and is getting lots of experience at a young age. He will win the FIFA World Player of the Year one day.

"I have had the honour of winning the award and it is a dream come true to say that you are the best player in the world."
