Orlando Mayor Says MLS Franchise Will Be Awarded To City, Possibly In Coming Weeks
Published June 21, 2013
COMING ATTRACTIONS: Orlando City coach Adrian Heath said that La Liga club Real Madrid MF Kaká “could join” the team “in the near future.” Heath on Tuesday said, “I believe it is very possible to get him here. You don’t have to be Einstein to work out that his contract ends right around the same time we expect to be in the MLS." In Orlando, Andrew Ward noted Kaká, who “has ties to Orlando City,” attended the club’s practice last Friday. Orlando City investor Flavio Augusto da Silva’s advisor Alexandre Leitão, “is the president of sports marketing group Octagon Brazil, which represents Kaká.” Heath said that Orlando City has “previously discussed bringing Kaká and other top-tier international players to Orlando if the team joins the MLS” (ORLANDOSENTINEL.com, 6/19).
