"Our understanding on the pitch has improved a lot and are able to find each other with assists," Kaka said. "It's a special time for us as a pair and we are hoping to finish the season strongly in these next two games.
"The turning point for us was the second goal in Athens. Since then we have got to know each other better when we play together. Pippo's best quality is that he keeps believing until the end and never gives up. He chases every ball until it has completely gone out of play.
"He was the only player who could have got on the end of the cross I put over against Inter on Sunday and that's why he is unique."
