Kaka: 'Paqueta ready for Brazil'

Ricky Kaka is confident new Milan signing Lucas Paqueta “is ready to wear the Number 10 for Brazil and write a great story.”

The creative midfielder was handed the iconic jersey for today’s friendly against Panama.

“It’s wonderful to see this rapport between Milan and Brazil, especially as Paqueta played for Flamengo and that is another connection between the Rossoneri and my land,” Kaka told Sky Sport Italia.

“Playing with the Number 10 shirt is wonderful for him and he will write a great story with Brazil. I think he’s ready to wear the Number 10 for Brazil, he just needs to mature in his football.

“He has a fine Coach in Gennaro Gattuso who knows South Americans. Gattuso helped me so much when I was at Milan and he too is improving in his confidence.”
