Brazilian footballer Kaka has been offered a director's role at AC Milan, where he spent seven years playing, across two spells (2003-09 and 2013-14). Kaka was a guest at San Siro on Thursday, when his former side took on Austria Wien in a Europa League clash. He was given a rousing reception when paraded on the field.

Now 35, Kaka announced in October that he will leave MLS side Orlando City when his contract expires next month, claiming "it's not a pleasure to play anymore".

Milan CEO Marco Fassone has opened the door for Kaka to take up a role within the club's organisational structure, but the 2002 world cup winner is yet to commit, with the continuation of his playing days still an option.

"I spoke with Fassone, I still haven't decided whether to keep playing or not," Kaka told reporters after Milan's 5-1 win.

"That said, to have the chance to become a Milan director is special for me. After the match, I went into the dressing room too. It was a great victory. I am sure all the Rossoneri fans are really happy.

"It's always a great feeling to be back home, I have so many great memories. It was a special night which will have a special place in my heart. Thanks to all the fans for this great welcome. Forza Milan!"
