Kaka insists AC Milan exit doesn't reflect on Inzaghi

Kaka insists his decision to leave AC Milan has nothing to do with new coach Pippo Inzaghi.

Kaka has signed with MLS expansion club Orlando City and will spend the first-half of next season on-loan with Sao Paulo.

"We've always had a great relationship, we spoke a lot even when I was at Madrid," Kaka revealed to Milan Channel.

"We are friends and I wish him the best for next season. He loves Milan and he can have a great season."

The midfielder also answered questions on the future of compatriot Robinho at San Siro, as well as the disappointment of missing out on a place in Brazil's World Cup squad.

"I don't know what Robinho will do, they are difficult decisions. I hope Robinho and Milan can make the best decision for everyone.

"I wanted to go to the World Cup but I have done it all. When I was at Madrid my chances of going to the World Cup were minimal, but at Milan that wasn't the case.

"This season has given me a lot, even though I wasn't included."
