Business and personal life

Kaladze on a billboard in Batumi, Georgia
Kaladze was born in Samtredia, a Georgian town near the Black Sea.[61] His father, Karlo, was a footballer for Lokomotiv Samtredia and was also president of the team at some point. At the age of 11, he played for his town's junior team.[61] .Kaladze is the owner of a restaurant called Giannino, founded in 1899 by Giannino Bindi, which is based in Milan.^ Milan }} The club was founded as a cricket club in 1899 by [[ United Kingdom .
  • A.C._Milan 15 September 2009 17:26 UTC hewgill.com [Source type: General]

[62][63] The restaurant has had a Michelin star under Davide Oldani.[64]
In 2001, Kaladze's brother Levan, a medical student, was kidnapped in Georgia, with a ransom of $600,000 demanded.[16 ] Georgia's president at the time, Eduard Shevardnadze promised "everything is being done to locate him",[65] despite this the only time that Levan was ever seen was in a video where he was shown blindfolded and begging for help.[66] Following the kidnapping, Kaladze threatened to take up Ukrainian citizenship,[15 ] but reverted his decision stating, "There was a time when I thought about quitting the national side completely, but I couldn’t do it out of respect for the Georgian people and the fans who come and give us such support."[67] Roughly four years later, on 6 May 2005, Georgian police officers found eight dead bodies in the Svaneti region and it was speculated that Levan was among the dead.[68][69] 21 February 2006 was the date when Levan was officially identified among the deceased[16 ] after tests from FBI experts.[70] The local media claimed that the ransom was paid by Kaladze's family[70] although another source says that Kaladze's father attempted to meet the kidnappers, who fled as they believed he was followed by the police.[9 ] Two men were sentenced to prison for the murder; David Asatiani for 25 years and Merab Amisulashvili for five years.[70] .On 14 July 2009, Kaladze's wife Anouki gave birth to their first born son in Milan.^ Preview: A.S.

The couple subsequently named their son Levan, in memory of Kaladze's brother.[71]
.Along with his football career, Kaladze is also a successful businessman with investments in Georgia, Italy, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.^ If the wire reports are correct, Kakha Kaladze has scored TWO own goals for Georgia - they trail Italy at home, 2-nil.

[72] Another investment was the establishment of Kala Capital—a holding company which plans to target banking, real estate and energy sectors of the Georgian economy.[73] Kaladze has also been active in charitable causes and is a FIFA ambassador for the SOS Children's Villages.[60 ] In 2008, Kaladze founded the Kala Foundation, an organisation that focuses on the "ethical purpose of dedicating all efforts particularly in helping and sustaining people in need".[74] Through the Kala Foundation, he raised €50,000 to benefit South Ossetian refugees during the conflict with Russia in 2008.[9 ] Kaladze also plans to release an autobiography with the proceeds going to the Kala Foundation.[75]
