â€śI am only disappointed Pato did so well tonight against my team!â€ť grinned Kaka on Sky Italia television. â€śBut he is a great striker and itâ€™s unfair to put so much pressure on his shoulders. He will soon show what he can do.â€ť
â€śAfter six years at Milan I know this team always comes out in the decisive moments of the Champions League. They have this grit and determination. However, Leonardo surprised us with the way he fielded a very attacking and aggressive side.
â€śIt was a game with many emotions, facing my former teammates and old club. We expected a victory to relax in the group, but didnâ€™t manage it and I hope we can soon get back on track to end the group phase positively. What we are missing right now is a precise identity and way of moving together as a unit. It isnâ€™t easy to form a squad from a group of talented players, but weâ€™re working on it.â€ť
At half-time Kaka hugged Coach Leonardo on the touchline. â€śWe just embraced and said hello, wishing each other luck, the usual things. I exchanged one shirt with Pippo [Inzaghi] and the other with [Massimo] Ambrosini.â€ť
