- Kaka is of the opinion that Steven Gerrard is a better midfielder than Frank Lampard
- There has been an unending debate between the former Liverpool and Chelsea legends
- Kaka had encountered Gerrard twice in the 2005 and 2007 Champions League seasons
Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have been touted as the best English midfielders of all time but the debate on who is better still lingers in the mind of fans.
But Brazil legend Kaka has waded into the conversation and he believes the Liverpool icon edged the Chelsea star.
Kaka has faced Gerrard in the Champions League during his spell at AC Milan especially in the 2005 and 2007 Champions League seasons.
“I like Gerrard,” Kaka opined.
“Of course, Lampard was pretty amazing. Scholes, the classic. But I'll have Gerrard.”
Liverpool defeated Milan in the finals of the 2005 edition, coming from three-goals down to win on penalties in Istanbul.
And Kaka admits a lot of mistakes in the second half cost them the trophy but the Rossoneri got their revenge in the 2007 finals.
“The final, because of the way it happened,” Kaka added
“It was painful to lose in 2006, but we just conceded a goal and made a lot of mistakes.
“In 2005, we were winning 3-0. Man, for four-five minutes we were going to win the Champions League...
“But in six minutes we conceded three goals, despite having one of the best defences in football history."
