Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insists Kaka is not a "dead weight".

Mourinho wanted Kaka to find a new club during the summer and has not fielded the Brazilian since the start of the season.

He said after victory over Granada: "Neither he nor anyone else is a dead-weight. Today we went in another direction, Benzema, Callejón, Modric played and we also wanted to give some stability to those that played against Barca.

"The three who were left out were the first choices, but a time will when Kaká will be an option."
