Kaka: 'Players must save Milan'

Ricky Kaka defended Clarence Seedorf, noting “it’s up to the players to turn this situation around” at Milan.

The Rossoneri have lost their last four in all competition and visit Lazio tonight at 19.45 GMT. Click here for a match preview.

“In a moment like this of great difficult, there can be opportunities both for the group and the individuals,” Kaka told Sport Mediaset.

“I never regretted returning to Milan, as difficulties are part of life. Milan remain a wonderful club. They can go through tough times, but they will be great again.

“I am happy on a personal level, though of course I can’t be satisfied with the results and neither can my teammates.”

There are reports Seedorf will be sacked if the Rossoneri suffer a heavy defeat to Lazio this evening.

“The locker room is united and it’s up to the players to turn this situation around, as we are the ones on the pitch,” continued Kaka.

President Silvio Berlusconi said this week he will start taking a more hands-on approach to the running of the club.

“It is important to know the President is close to us, because his experience can help us. What I want to tell the fans is that they must stand by us in difficult times so we can emerge together.

“Seedorf wants to emerge from this moment, just as we do.”
