Kaka scores 100th AC Milan goal against Atalanta

The Brazilian scored in the 35th minute to put his side ahead at San Siro and complete a century of goals in Rossoneri colors.
Kaka’s goal against Atalanta at San Siro saw his AC Milan record move on to 100 goals.

The Brazilian sealed his century of strikes by scoring in the 35th minute to give Massimiliano Allegri’s side a 1-0 lead in its Serie A clash. Urby Emanuelson led a Milan counterattack with a surging run and played in Kaka, who netted a composed finish past goalkeeper Andrea Consigli.

To acknowledge reaching the landmark, Kaka celebrated the goal by holding up a Milan strip with "Kaka 100" to the home supporters.

Kaka’s strike was the fifth time he has scored in his second spell at the club. The 31-year-old’s previous 95 Milan goals came during his initial stint at San Siro from 2003 to 2009. His most productive season came in the 2007-08 campaign when he netted 19 goals from 41 games. He also scored 19 in 2005-06, but that was from 49 appearances.

The former Real Madrid star’s other four goals this season have come against Catania, Genoa, Lazio and Celtic.
