Futbol, aka soccer in the US, has a new star.

As the Orlando City Soccer Club gears up for it’s first season in major league soccer, Kaka has been named the team’s captain.

It’s a fitting responsibility considering the Brazilian midfielder will be pulling in nearly $7.2 million this season, a record contract in MLS.

The former Milan and Real Madrid man has already shown moments of brilliance in Orlando’s opening preseason match.

Orlando City previously released an official statement naming Kaka as the club’s captain.

“Orlando City Soccer Club today announced it has named midfielder and 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year Kaká the team captain as the Lions prepare for the start of their inaugural Major League Soccer (MLS) season.  The Club opens MLS play against fellow newcomers New York City FC Sunday, March 8, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. ET at the Orlando Citrus Bowl.”

Kaka will have a lot of pressure on him as the league’s highest paid player with playoff aspirations for an expansion franchise. The 2002 World Cup champion and 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year clearly has the resume for the job, and will be looking to add an MLS Cup to his trophy case.
