Montolivo: Kaka is a champion

Riccardo Montolivo is convinced Kaka will continue to make a difference for Milan over the course of the season.

The Brazilian returned to San Siro in the summer on a free transfer, three years after leaving for Real Madrid.

After initially struggling with fitness issues, the attacking midfielder is now starting to make an impact for the Diavolo.

“Kaka arrived and then immediately had an injury,” said Montolivo, who like Kaka scored in the 3-1 win at Catania on Sunday.

“But he’s a great champion and he makes the difference in every match. He brings with him lots of experience.

“Let’s hope he keeps it up and he’s got great charisma.”
