Brazil's superstar midfielder Kaka announced on Sunday his desire to return to his home team of Sao Paulo.
The player hopes to retire wearing the Sao Paulo jersey where he began his career before turning his life over the Evangelical church to become a pastor.
"When a player is close to ending his career, it is fundamental for him to think about what he is going to do for the rest of his life," said Kaka.
"Life changes dramatically. When you are 20 years old, you think about one thing. When you are 30, you change your mind. For this reason, it is important for me to begin to think about what I want to do with the rest of my life. I am going to begin my preparations to one day become a priest," said the star of the Brazilian national soccer team.
Kaka is a member of the Reborn in Christ Evangelical church. Its founders, Estevam and Sonia Hernandes have recently returned from the United States after having been imprisoned for money laundering. They were caught with stashes of cash hidden between the pages of their bible.
