Kaka calls for Madrid improvement


Real Madrid playmaker Kaka has said his team must improve their defensive record if they are to be in with a realistic chance of winning trophies next year.

In the last month alone, Los Blancos have conceded three or more goals in a game on three occasions – Galatasaray, Borussia Dortmund and Valladolid – something the Brazilian says has to stop next season.

Speaking after the narrow 4-3 win over Valladolid, Kaka said the defensive performances of late have not been good enough.

He stated: “The entire defensive system is to blame, but these are things to improve.”

He added that part of the problem at the weekend was motivating themselves for the La Liga fixture following the defeat in the Champions League semi-final.

“We thought it was possible to make it to the final, but we could not, and playing four days later is not easy. But we once again showed our ability to make a comeback against a great Valladolid,” he said.
