- 9 goals from 33 games ( 8 in 25 Liga matches; 1 in 7 Champions League)
|Kaka with Real Madrid|
Mysterious pelvis injury that did not stop Kaka representing Brazil, then a knee injury post - World Cup that required surgery & kept the player on the sidelines 5 months. Not good return on investment from an economic perspective after costing Real Madrid 67M€.
It seems the patience of the Real Madrid fan base & at the higher levels of the Club is becoming thin as the Brazilian is a shadow of the player that put him on top of World Football with AC Milan.
His supporters have a strong argument in his defence; Kaka needs games to find fitness & rhythm after a mayor knee surgery. The reality is that after participating in a few games in attempt to regain lost form the player has been slow, very slow & non-effective. This Saturdays game against Deportivo saw a somewhat lost & out of pace Kaká that had to be substituted after Coach Mourinho´s frustration with the player was too much to handle.
Today's Spanish Sports paper "AS" writes that REAL MADRID WILL LISTEN to offers for Kaka & for next season. In fact the big news is from England, were the newspaper "The Daily Mirror" have written that CHELSEA FC has suggested an offer for Kaka with Drogba in the operation. From Italy there are softer rumours of interest from Inter Milan & AC Milan.
I for one think all this talk & rumour is premature & it could all be a "media campaign" to smarten up the player, promote some harder training within the Kaká & mentally build the Brazilian into action.
The conclusion & the main piece of news to bear in mind is how this post started: patience is beginning to wear itself thin at Real Madrid. Stay tuned!
