Ricky Kaka feels “like a kid about to make his debut” and could start for Milan against Torino on Saturday.
The Brazilian was speaking at an Adidas Store event and signed his shirt for fans.
“I am happy with all this enthusiasm. I am training well and feel like a kid about to make his debut,” said Kaka.
“I well remember my debut for Milan away to Ancona. Adriano Galliani saw me during my difficult days, when I didn’t know what was going to happen, but now he sees me happy.
“I am targeting a place at the World Cup, but above all to do well here. I promise the utmost effort and one of my objectives is to reach 100 goals for Milan. I only need five and hope to get there soon.”
Asked about his first week of training with the Rossoneri, Kaka praised his new teammates.
“We joked around in the locker room with Balo and El Shaarawy. We get along well and can play all together. This is a team with great players who respect each other.”
It’s reported he could start Saturday night’s Serie A match against Torino at the Stadio Olimpico.
“It will be an exciting match and I’ll try to stay calm so that I can play at my best. Then there’s the Champions League and I already scored an important goal against Celtic in my career, celebrating my Ballon d’Or.
“I will try to be in good shape and at the disposal of the Coach.”
