Kaka: My challenge for this season is to play more


Real Madrid playmaker Kaka has admitted he is in need of more playing time this season, in order to make it in Brazil’s squad for the World Cup.

The Brazilian has not performed as expected since he arrived from AC Milan in 2009 for 65 million euros. He has never found a spot in the starting eleven and his role in the team has become less important over the seasons.

Last year, Kaka only started 12 La Liga games, and after missing out on Brazil’s squad for the Confederations Cup, he has set his sights on more playing time to convince Luiz Felipe Scolari and earn a ticket to the World Cup.

“My challenge for this season is to play with more continuity,” he admitted at an Adidas event.

“I want to be physically fit, and then if I do well for my club I can get back in the national team. I want to play in the World Cup next summer”, he confessed.

Kaka had been linked with a move away from Santiago Bernabeu for the last three years, but the arrival of his former Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has silenced the rumours about his exit.

The 31-year-old is now under a special training programme to improve his fitness, and Ancelotti seems ready to give him a more important role in the team.

“Carlo is an open coach who is helping me a lot. Personally, it’s great to train with him”, Kaka said.
