Former World Best Player of the Year winner Ricardo Kaka has spoken of his desire to return the club that brought him him global fame and recognition -AC Milan. The World Cup winner is hoping to represent the famous colours of the Rossoneri albeit in a non playing role but he is said to be undecided whether or not to end his playing career.
The former Brazil international was back at the San Siro on Thursday night, where he watched the Milan club’s 5-1 Europa League win over Austria Vienna. He had spent the day visiting the club’s new headquarters and meeting with the Serie A club’s new owners.
During those meetings, reports from various sources suggested that he was being offered a director’s role, a responsibility he refused to take on immediately given that he has not officially retired.
“I need to sort out my personal situation first,” the trequartista told Sky Sport Italia when quizzed on the job offer. “I’ve given myself a few months to decide what I need to do. I did not want to decide before the end of the season and I want to make up my mind with calm. Then, if I do decide to stop playing, I will consider my future.
“Certainly Milan are a possibility, especially now the doors are open for me. My relationship with this club is excellent. It’s an indescribable emotion for me to be here in Milan these days, I can’t explain it.
“I’m loving being in the city and it’s bringing back lots of memories of my life and my career. It’s hard to explain.”
Kaka praised Milan’s excellent display as they put five past Austria Vienna. The performance was perhaps the team’s most impressive outing in recent times given their indifferent form in the league. Kaka had special praise for Andre Silva whose presence was pivotal in he win. He was quoted to have said of Silva, “He has a great future ahead of him and could easily have found a place in the great Milan I was in,” and adding that he could see potential in the young Milan squad.
Meanwhile following Milan’s dour goaless draw at home to Torino over the weekend which have them placed a whooping eleven points off AS Roma in 4th erstwhile coach Vincenzo Montella has been sacked and replaced by former Milan skipper Genaro Gattuso. The result meant Milan have only won a paltry two games out of eight. The team have enjoyed a fine run in the Europa League, clinching their place in the round of 32 with one group game to spare on Thursday night, but their form in the league have left a lot to be expected from the expensively assembled squad.
