Barcelona full-back Dani Alves has criticised Real Madrid for leaving his fellow Brazilian Kaka languishing on the bench.
The flying fullback has lambasted the capital club, saying he has 'no respect' for Jose Mourinho's side.
“If I was Kaka, I would have left Real Madrid a long time ago,” Alves told Esporte Interativo. “I feel very sad because I admire Kaka.
“He made it to where very few get to – being the best player in the world – and now he is getting no respect.
“I have no respect for the Real Madrid owners, they should have respect for someone who was once the best player in the world.
“I don't think he would be going through this at Barcelona.”
Kaka, who nearly returned to Milan this summer, is yet to appear in a competitive game for Real thus far this season.
The former Sevilla man also remarked on ex-boss Pep Guardiola, who he believes is the best Coach in the world.
“Pep Guardiola is the best Coach I've had. He is the most complete, someone that you learn something from every day. That is the difference between him and other Coaches I've had.
“I believe Guardiola could train any team in the world and do well. I admire him so much.”
