The best and funniest tweets from the world of football this week, featuring Kaka’s playing six-a-side football in England’s capital, Liverpool’s baby boom nine months on from that comeback, and the Newcastle fan with the helicopter celebration.
As if a former Balon d’Or winner is playing astro in London – and some rando told him to cutback!

Kaka was ruined by one of the opposition players, though. Throw his medals in the bin.

(The whole thing was, of course, organised by his kit sponsor).
Jordan Henderson has a baby, Mo Salah’s partner is expecting – I wonder how many more Liverpool babies are on the way this week?

It was inspired by Allan Saint-Maximin’s golazo in the FA Cup against Oxford United to be fair, it’s natural he got a bit excited.

Erling Haaland is enjoying a superb start to his Borussia Dortmund career, although there’s one thing about it he doesn’t enjoy.

This Lionel Messi thread will blow your mind:
Thread: An absurd stat about Lionel Messi. In the 11 full seasons from 08/09 to 18/19, he scored 561 goals in 577 games for Barcelona, good enough for 0.97 goals/game over 11 seasons. That, quite obviously is good. But how can we make this even more ridiculous than it already is?
