Reborn Brazilian ace to get a starting berth after few key players have picked up injuries…
Brazil’s national team returnee is expected to start Saturday’s game against La Liga newcomers Celta de Vigo, as Marca reports.
Few Real Madrid players may be out due to injuries picked up on international duty. As for Ricky, the two crucial games against Iraq and Japan have turned him into a super-hero. His performance for the Brazilian team, his first appearance for his home country since the 2010 South African world cup.
Milan’s former star has come back from Brazil in better form than ever. Since then, he has been in the starting line-up twice, scored a brace of goals and set up another two. Real Madrid coach Mourinho knows that he has to make the most of the Kaka effect.
Firstly, for the good of the Madrid giant and, secondly, to help the player feel he is an important part of the team. For this reason, Mourinho has (finally) decided to include him in the starting line-up against Celta.
The experienced tactician is expected to play Kaka and Ozil together right from the start, a solution that he resorted to frequently last season with excellent results. If Mourinho does indeed decide to start with three attacking midfielders, the 30-year-old Brazilian hero will play just behind the forwards in the position he likes best.
In the meantime, in an interview for Sussidiario, Telenova’s director Gianni Visnadi has emerged Milan to give another shot in efforts to bring the former ace back at the San Siro. “Even 50% ready Kaka is way better than the whole team, especially referring to Kevin-Prince Boateng”, he said.
