Former AC Milan and 2007 Ballon d'Or winner Kaka hinted he may emulate Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane as he ponders his next move after professional football.
Kaka, 35, retired from the game last year after finishing the season with MLS side Orlando City but conceded he wants to remain in the sport.
The former Brazil international lifted every honour he possibly could within the European game during his time with AC Milan and Real Madrid, including the 2006/07 UEFA Champions League.
With Seleção, he achieved 92 caps and scored 29 goals over 14 years, winning two FIFA Confederations Cup titles and the 2002 FIFA World Cup.
Now the former Los Blancos midfielder plans to work his way slowly to a managerial hotseat in Europe, in the same manner 'Zizou' did before successfully winning consecutive UEFA Champions League titles and LaLiga.
"I'd like to do like Zizou. He stopped playing, took some time off, he saw that he liked to coach and paid his dues in the youth system. I could do like him," he told Globoesporte.
