Real Madrid coach Mourinho: Sergio Canales can fill Kaka boots

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho says Sergio Canales will be staying with his squad this season.

The 18 year-old signing from Racing Santander was expected to leave on-loan.

But Mourinho, talking about Kaka's four month absence, said Canales could feature in place of the Brazilian: "He will surprise. He has surprised me.

"He looks very good and can play in the same position as Kaka behind the strikers.

"Since working with him, I have been very impressed."
