Ricardo Kaka is enthusiastic for his return to the Brazil squad and admits that ‘things are getting better’ for him at Real Madrid.
The attacker has endured an indifferent season at the Santiago Bernabeu, finding himself close to leaving in the last two transfer windows and struggling to come off the bench under Jose Mourinho.
However, a recent run in the first team has earned him a recall to the Brazil squad, now under the stewardship of Luiz Felipe Scolari.
“I have not yet spoken with Scolari, it will be a nice reunion to be back at work with him,” commented the 30-year-old to reporters in Brazil today.
“I do not know for how long, but I do hope to be called up for the World Cup and whenever else is possible.
“I feel that things are getting better for me, especially at my club. I am playing more often in Madrid. I’m getting the recognition from the fans and that is giving me extra motivation.
“Now I hope to take this opportunity with Brazil.”
Kaka is the oldest outfield player and the most-capped in the current Brazilian squad.
“I am a new veteran. Numbers are important. I admit that I did not know this, but it makes me happy to continue to be selected and be a part of this new phase of the team.”
