Huahahahahaha...but he does look like the singer.

Cafu is great for Milan and he gave his best whenever called. Another loyal servant of football, not only of Milan or Roma.

SERIE A: DECISIONS OF THE SPORTING JUDGE
5/19/2008

MILAN - Here are the decisions of the Sporting Judge after the 38th matchday of the Serie A:
one matchday: Borriello, Milanetto, Sacramento (Genoa), Sissoko (Juventus), Baiocco (Catania), Bonera and Cafu (Milan), Domizzi (Napoli), Riganò (Siena), Rivalta (Atalanta) and Semioli (Fiorentina).

As Cafu is going to leave Milan, what's going to happen? Ban him and end up with nothing? Or a fine on the club?

I think his father had been battling illness for a couple years.

Cafu keen on the Gold Coast
16 July 2008 | 18:43 - SBS

The two-time World Cup winner and Brazil’s most capped player has shocked Gold Coast officials by indicating his willingness to become the club’s maiden marquee signing.

The former AS Roma and AC Milan wing-back closed the curtain on 10 shimmering years in Serie A two months ago at the venerable age of 38 with a goal in his final game against Udinese.

Though well into football dotage, Cafu – christened Marcos Evangelista de Moraes - made 15 appearances for the Italian giants last season.

And he is considered to have weathered the inexorable march of time better than any player of his generation, save former AC Milan team-mate Paolo Maldini.

After being approached by a prominent Brazilian identity trumpeting Cafu's desire to swell the ranks of the A-League based Brazilians, United's head coach Miron Bleiberg said: "Sometimes age is just a number. You can be old at 30 but Cafu is one of those who has defied time.

"To me his chronological age is not the all-important factor. He was playing at the top level until last May and it's a credit to the A-League and the Gold Coast as a new entity that a player of his calibre is keen to join us.

"It's just another example of the interest this club has been generating here and abroad.

"For him it would not be a matter of money - it would be more about the challenge of being something of a pioneer and also about the lifestyle we offer."

Cafu, known as the 'Express Train' for his rampaging burst down the right flank, won Italian titles with Roma and AC Milan, for whom he captured a UEFA Champions League winners' medal last year.

"Cafu has always had a taste for adventure," a source in Brazil said.

"His body has held up remarkably well. He's not as fast as before but he plays with his mind too and his reading of situations is superb. He's interested in Australia and helping the game develop there.

"It would not be about money for him. It would be about personal satisfaction. He played against Australia in the group stage of the 2006 World Cup and was very impressed with the spirit and endeavour of the Socceroos.

"Even though Brazil won 2-0, he admitted they were a little fortunate and he wanted Australia to progress further in the tournament than they did. He sees it as a country that’s going places in football."

There are already seven of his countrymen in the A-League but the arrival of a football apostle of Cafu's stature would produce a Pope-like buzz among Australian football’s pilgrims.

Bleiberg, who is no hurry to splash the cash, is keeping his options open, explaining: "Until we officially get our A-Licence (next month) we can't negotiate with players, though it's true to say Cafu is one of several big names that we are looking at."

While the club's emergence has alerted overseas agents keen to help billionaire owner Clive Palmer part with some of his fortune, there's also interest aplenty on home soil with Central Coast Mariners marksman Sasho Petrovski revealing that Project Palmer is the talk of change-rooms nationwide.

"Everybody is talking about the Gold Coast, the private jets the players will use and how they will bring a bit more glamour to the competition. I think the club will be able to pick and choose who they sign," Petrovski, out of contract with the reigning Premiers at the end of the forthcoming season, said.

"Being a part of all that is a very attractive option for many players, and it says a lot for a team that won't even come into the league until 2009."

For those of you guys who are unfamiliar with this, Gold Coast has a license to enter a team in the A League this upcoming season.

A League is the Australian League, each team has a marquee player who's fees dont get included in the salary cap. Its about equal to Serie C if their is such a league, as most of the players that play in our national team all play in Europe.

If this happens he will put alot of bums on seats and raise the profile of the A League and he'd be great for the new Gold Coast team.

The best part of it is, I live on the Gold Coast and I'll get to see him, be great if it happens, and he'll love the life style.

Cafu Set For Move ‘Down Under’
According to 'Australian and British Soccer Weekly', legendary Brazilian veteran Cafu could be set for a transfer to Australia with Gold Coast United.
Cafu’s brilliant European career came to a close last season when his contract at Milan ran out.

The 38-year-old, who has won every major honour in the game, both internationally and at club level, was expected to wind down his last year or two in his Brazilian homeland, however it has now been reported that he could be set for a new adventure in Australia.

Australian and British Soccer Weekly claims that ‘Il Pendolino’ is considering a transfer to Gold Coast United, who are looking for some big names following the enlargement of the A-League.

Cafu certainly fits into this category following an absolutely incredible career to date. The right wing back began his days at Sao Paulo, where he excelled in a fine side who picked up successive Copa Libertadores and Intercontinental crowns in 1992 and 1993.

He first arrived on Italian shores in 1997 with Roma. He stayed there for six years, winning one Scudetto, before joining Milan, where he then added another championship, as well as a Champions League, European Super Cup and Club World Cup title.

Cafu is Brazil’s all-time record appearance maker, and has won two World Cups in 1994 and 2002, lifting the latter as captain.
