Real Madrid coach Aitor Karanka admits management were delighted with Kaka's performance in victory over Ajax.

Kaka was on the scoresheet and impressed in the 3-0 rout.

"We who have trusted him, to see his face now light up after a difficult time, makes us all happy. He has always been a great player, no matter what has happened to him, and he deserves to return to his best.

"He has to realise that he can return to the quality player he was before by working here with us."
