Los Merengues’ midfielder reflects on Thursday’s Champions League draw…
Real Madrid’s Brazilian star Kaka says he is relishing the prospect of returning to the San Siro with his new club after they were drawn to face Milan in Group C of the UEFA Champions League.
“It will be special,” Kaka told AS. “Back in Milan is something really special for me. To face my friends, to a club that I have great affection for.”
The 27-year-old Brazilian played 270 times during six years at the Rossoneri, before completing a €68.5 million move to the Bernabeu during the summer.
And the playmaker now says he expects a good reception when he returns to the Giuseppe Meazza stadium with his new employers.
“I expect a very good reception because I am very fond of the San Siro public,” he commented.
Kaka also said he has respect for the other sides in the group, Zurich and Marseille, but insists he and his team-mates’ sites are set on winning the Champions League crown at the Bernabeu next May.
“We have a lot of respect for Milan, and also Zurich and Marseille, they are great teams. We want to do well and my team-mates are excited an focussed. The final is at home and we want to win it,” concluded the Brazilian.
