Madrid, Aug 30(ANI): Real Madrid striker Kaka, who had a 59 million pound transfer from AC Milan to Madrid this summer, has said that money is not what he plays for, rather he seeks to demonstrate God's importance in his life.
"I seek to demonstrate what God has done for me and that he can do it in the lives of others as well. One needs to have tranquility and calmness," News of the World quoted Kaka, as saying.I use my money to show what good God can do for people. I can honestly say that I don't think too much about money. If you talk about the good it can do for my church then that is different," he added.
Kaka prays every day, carries a copy of the Bible with him and has even taken lessons in theology with a view to becoming an evangelical pastor when he playing career ends, it is believed that he even pays 10 per cent of his wage to his favoured evangelical church.
"I was born into an evangelical Christian home but when I was baptised in 1994 something supernatural happened to me. I cannot explain it but after that experience I got closer to God - more in tune with him. At that moment I was really born spiritually," Kaka said.
His devotion can be derived from the fact the he recovered from a horrific swimming-pool accident nine years ago which had nearly left him paralysed from the neck down. (ANI)
