Kaka makes his comeback for Milan today against Gianluca Zambrotta’s Chiasso, who believes he can “still be very useful.”
The Brazilian is expected to play in the friendly that kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT).
“Kaka is a wonderful person and a great professional, both on the field and off it,” Zambrotta told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I think he can still be very useful to Milan. He just needs four or five games to find consistency and you’ll see what he can do.”
Zambrotta is one of the Rossoneri old guard who moved on at the end of his contract and is continuing his playing career in Switzerland with Chiasso.
“It will be a strange feeling playing against Milan, especially as I don’t know so many of the current players, even if it has only been a year.
“I am happy to face Milan again. I am relaxed, as eras come to an end for everybody and the club had to bring down the average age sooner or later.
“However, I did not agree with some of the choices. Massimo Ambrosini was not given the faith he deserved.”
Former captain Ambrosini saw his contract run out and is still in Serie A for Fiorentina.
