Kaka flew into Italy this afternoon to begin working with Milan, but admits “we haven’t yet discussed” the role he’ll have.
The Brazilian will essentially take on an apprenticeship with the Rossoneri, with a view to taking a role within the club in the future.
It was speculated this morning that could be a scouting position, as he doesn’t want to spend too much time away from his family.
“I’m very happy every time I come here,” Kaka told reporters as he arrived in Italy.
“I saw the match against Napoli and I hope this will be a very good season for Milan. I talk to Leonardo a lot because we’re friends, but we haven’t yet discussed the role I’ll have at Milan.
“Right now my priority is my children, who live in Brazil. I have to be with them. With Leo and Paolo [Maldini] though I can get even closer to Milan.
“I want to understand what I like to do in football now. Coming back to San Siro for Milan-Roma will be great, and I expect Milan to win!”
Kaka was also asked about Coach Rino Gattuso, a former teammate.
“I’m very happy that Gattuso is Coach of Milan, Rino always had a lot of determination and desire as well as a great mentality. Now we hope there are results, we hope the results come from his character.”
