Kaka the 'centurion'

07 January 2014 [18:00] - TODAY.AZ
Kaka’s double against Atalanta at San Siro saw his AC Milan record move past 100 goals.

The Brazilian sealed his century of strikes by scoring in the 35th minute to give Massimiliano Allegri’s side the lead in their Serie A clash.

Urby Emanuelson led a Milan counter-attack 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.

The captain on the day went on to score a second goal of the afternoon in the 65th minute to move onto 101 goals, pouncing on a loose ball to smash home from just outside the six-yard box.

Kaka’s strikes were the fifth and sixth times 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 between 2003 and 2009.

His most productive season came in the 2007-08 campaign where 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 from this season have come against Catania, Genoa, Lazio and Celtic.

Milan went on to beat Atalanta 3-0, securing their first victory in five matches.
