Real Madrid ace Kaka thanks AC Milan fans for warm welcome

Real Madrid star Kaka was grateful to AC Milan fans for their welcome after last night's 1-1 draw at the San Siro. Ronaldinho cancelled out Karim Benzema's opener for Real Madrid in the Champions League clash.

"It was wonderful, just as I expected it to be. I had such great moments at San Siro and this too was another emotional night. I thank all the fans for that gift, said Kaka.

"It wasn't easy to deal with so many emotions, but I did prepare for it and knew it was going to be tough. I tried to keep those feelings in check and focus on my football."

There was some controversy before his arrival, as striker Marco Borriello was quoted as saying he thought Kaka had lost some of his technique since moving to Madrid.

"I went to the Milan locker room before kick-off and joked about it. He said that wasn't what he meant, these things are stirred up by the media. It wasn't a problem," grinned the Brazilian on Sky Italia television.

Real have been hammered by the media lately, but Kaka can see light at the end of the tunnel.

"The pressure is the same, the expectation to always win. I had a good start, recently things have been bad for everyone in the team, but we are getting back on track.

"In these last two games against Getafe and Milan there have been significant improvements. Before when we won it was mainly down to individual moments, but now we are seeing the team unit come together.

"It's not enough to just buy lots of stars in order to win."
