Frank Lampard has paid AC Milan's Brazilian phenom Kaka the ultimate compliment by declaring him to be the only player that he would part with his hard-earned cash to watch.
While the debate over who the best player on the planet is between Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi shows no signs of abating, there is no question in the mind of Chelsea's star midfielder.
Lampard told News of the World, “You get to play with and against the very best when you play for Chelsea, but Kaka is the only player in the world I would pay money to watch. Some of the things I have seen him do on the pitch amaze me.
“He has the lot — fantastic skill, pace, vision, great passing and he scores goals. As a midfield player you are lucky if you have three of those attributes.
“For me, he is the best player in the world and he’ll probably go down as one of the best ever. I’ve admired him for years. I look at a player like that and see if I can learn anything from him.
“And when a player enjoys watching another professional you know they are something special.”
Lampard would have had the pleasure of lining up against Kaka more regularly had Manchester City managed to pull off a €100 million transfer coup in January.
