Brazilian legend, Paulo Roberto Falcao, visited Real Madrid’s training ground this week to have a meeting with Madrid coach, Jose Mourinho and spoke of how important Kaka is to Brazil.
The former Brazilian international was full of praise for the work the Portuguese tactician has done in his time at Madrid and also spoke of how important Kaka’s experience is for the Brazilian team.
”Kaka is the biggest hope Brazil have because of his qualities and his experience,” Falcao told Real Madrid’s official website.
”Brazil have great players and are trying to build a team and now there’s a lot of expectation with Kaka’s come back to the Selecao because of his technical leadership and tactical play.”
Kaka hasn’t played for Brazil since they were knocked against the Netherlands in the Quarter Finals of the 2010 World Cup.
However, the twenty nine year old midfielder was recently called up by Brazilian coach, Mano Menezes, for their international friendlies against Gabon and Egypt but missed out on his return after picking up a calf injury a week before the fixtures.
Also if fit, Menezes has already confirmed Kaka will be called up for Brazil’s next game in 2012.
The former Milan playmaker returned full training on Tuesday and has a chance of playing against Sporting Gijon on Saturday.
