AC Milan chief Galliani warns Kaka over Beijing ambition

AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani says they won't consider releasing their senior players for the Beijing Olympics.

"The Olympics are not part of the FIFA calendar, it is just a great tournament reserved for the Under-23 players in which three older figures are allowed," said Galliani in reaction to reports that Kaka could join the Brazil Olympic team.

"I think that everything should be viewed in a reasonable manner, both from the clubs and the Federations.

"Milan will release any Under-23 players, so if Pato is called by Brazil then we will let him go. One can find opportune agreements for the over-age players, though."

It has also been reported Italy could offer to bring along some of the Rossoneri's older figures, including Inzaghi and Andrea Pirlo.

"Let us not forget this is the year of the European Championships, that during the Olympics some Leagues have already started and there are the preliminaries for the Champions League," concluded Galliani.
