Kaka Has Promised To Cut The Ball Back To Hackney Footballer Who Went Viral

Kaka Has Promised To Cut The Ball Back To Hackney Footballer Who Went Viral

Kaka has settled the score with the Hackney footballer who dared him to "cut back" earlier this year.

Back in February, in one of the best moments of what has been a dire year, Kaka turned out for Reach Out FC in Hackney, London on a one-game loan as part of Adidas' 'Rent-a-pred' campaign.

Proving to be the best 'ringer' in football history, the Brazilian legend rolled back the years in a seven-a-side game on the hallowed astroturf at Haggerston School.

Although he did get nutmegged, Kaka scored twice and assisted two more goals in a 4-2 win.

But the main talking point afterwards was the incredible moment 24-year-old Ali Aden had the cheek to ask the 2007 Ballon d'Or winner to "cut back" when he had the ball.

Kaka ignored his request and scored a stunning left-footed strike into the top corner, with Aden going viral and becoming a massive meme as a result of his antics.

The have gone back and forth on social media over the last few months and now, finally, they settled matters "once and for all" after Kaka challenged him to a duel using adidas GMR, an in-sole & chip that allows you to measure, compete and record a number of different metrics including shot power, top speed and distance covered.

Former AC Milan and Real Madrid man Kaka came out on top with a shot power score of 120.3km/h to 96.6km/h but Aden's valiant effort earned his respect.

He said: "I'm glad that I've finally been able to settle the debate and prove with GMR that I was right. Ali is a great guy and a very good footballer, so I hope that one day we'll be able to play together again. Maybe even next time I'm in London!"
