Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insists he's prepared to work with Kaka this season.

Mourinho last week told Kaka in a crunch meeting to expect a limited role should he choose to stay for the new campaign.

However, he said yesterday: "As long as he's a Madrid player, and he may be next season, he will train with the first team, travel. And if it is to end, I loved working with him.

"He can still do things for us."
