Ricky Kaka has landed in Italy today as he’s ready to watch Milan-Roma and perhaps start working for the club.

Kaka has already made it clear that he would like to work for Milan alongside Leonardo and Paolo Maldini in the not-so-distant future, and today the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner arrived in Italy.

Ricky has been retired for less than a year and is looking to get back at working in football, but the 36-year-old claims his role in the new Milan hasn’t been defined.

“I’m very happy every time I come here,” Kaka told reporters after landing in the Linate airport. “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 get even closer to Milan. I want to understand what I like to do in football now.

“Gattuso? I’m very happy that Gattuso is coach of Milan, Rino always had a lot of determination and lot of desire as well as a great mentality in terms of work. Now we hope there are results, we hope the results come from his character. Why I didn’t come with the previous ownership? Because when I had stopped playing football, I wanted to be closer to my children.

“It will be great to come back to San Siro. Returning for Milan-Rome will be great and I expect a Milan victory.” The match against the Giallorossi is on Friday evening at 20:30 CEST.
